Abstract Background:<\b>
Regular physical activity is central in type 2 diabetes. Sophia Step Study is a two-year randomized controlled trial aimed at evaluating the impact of two levels of pedometer intervention intensity on cardiometabolic control and physical activity (Clinical Trial NCT02374788). The aim of this study is to present six months results on physical activity. Methods:<\b>
Individuals aged 40-80 years with type 2 diabetes were recruited and randomized to one of three intervention arms. Group A participants were offered a pedometer and a website to register steps, physical activity on prescription, motivational interviewing (4 occasions) and group consultations (7 occasions). Group B participants were offered pedometers and a website to register steps. Group C participants were offered standard care. Physical activity was evaluated using ActiGraph GT1M accelerometers. Results:<\b>
By November 2016, physical activity data at baseline and six months was provided from 84 participants: 34 in group A, 28 in group B and 22 in group C. Mean (SD) age was 64 (8) years, 62 % men. Improvements in physical activity were seen with significant changes (p<0.005) between respective intervention group and control group. Mean (SD) daily step change was 1245 (2159), 1564 (2433) and -570 (1965) steps in group A, B and C, respectively. Similarly, mean change in daily moderate-to-vigorous physical activity was 5.5 (17.3), 11.6 (24) and -5.4 (13.4) minutes/day in group A, B and C, respectively. Conclusion:<\b>
Pre-term results show that step registration only, or combined with counselling, have potential to increase physical activity after six months intervention.
