Abstract :

Sawangwong P, Sriyakul K, Kumar Pawa K, Phetkate P, Nootim P, Tungsukruthai P. Selected Thai Exercise (Ruesi Dadton) Postures to Affect Glycemic Level in People with Prediabetes. JEPonline 2022;25(4):84-103. The purpose of this study was to identify appropriate and feasible Ruesi Dadton (RD) postures to affect glycemic levels in people with prediabetes. This study employed a mixed-methods design to select the RD postures. Qualitative data collected from the first 3 procedures: literature review, in-depth interviews, and focus group were analyzed. Quantitative data from a pilot study as the final procedure in Thai Traditional Medicine (TTM) practitioners as 10 healthy subjects (5 males and 5 females). The in-depth interviews were constructed according to the WHO's 6 building blocks. Ten RD postures were selected from the literature review, focus group and in-depth interviews. During the RD exercise, the subjects practiced the selected 10 RD postures 3 times*[wk.sup.-1] for 1 week. Autonomic nervous system parameters including heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate were measured before and after the RD exercise. The results indicate that the RD exercise increased heart rate and respiratory rate significantly, while decreasing blood pressure significantly (P Key Words: Glycemic Level, Prediabetes, Ruesi Dadton, Thai Traditional Medicine
