This study measures the distress and Quality of Life (QoL) among people with type II diabetics in relation to physical exercise. The study was conducted using diabetic participants chosen from various hospitals, aerobic centres, playgrounds and gyms in the city of Hyderabad in India. The participants were divided into two groups – group 1 comprising people who did not adopt physical activity as part of their diabetes management strategy and group 2 comprising people who engaged in physical activity. A quasi-experimental study was performed on both groups employing purposive and snowball sampling methods. Pearson r showed that distress is negatively correlated with QoL among type II diabetics in both groups. Independent t-test indicated that participants in group 2 showed better QoL and lower levels of distress compared to their counterparts in group 1.
