The purpose of this research is to connect the different exercise behaviors between type 2 diabetes patients who are taking insulin now versus type 2 diabetes patients who are not taking insulin now. The data is taken from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between the years of 2007–2008. Pearson's Chi-squared test and t tests were run between the two groups to determine the variance in different activity levels. Respondents were asked frequency levels of vigorous, moderate, and sedentary activity. The research illustrated that diabetics who are taking insulin were significantly less likely to engage in any level of physical activity than those who are not. Difference in activity levels between insulin patients and non-insulin patients can be attributed to the health status of those who are taking insulin, thus making it more difficult to perform more strenuous physical activities than those who are not taking insulin. One recommendation from the findings is that exercise plans for type 2 diabetics should be unique to the individual and more specifically, insulin use status.
