Abstract:


Purpose: Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is correlated with a group of diseases related to the metabolism of glucose that is increasingly affecting the population, being considered a public health problem. Exercise increases absorption of glucose by the muscles during, pre- and post- periods of effort, therefore, it is an excellent treatment strategy to maintain the glycemic control of diabetic patients. Caffeine intake enhances Ca2+ concentration in β pancreatic cells, affecting insulin secretion.

Materials and Methods: Systematic review with a sample of six scientific papers published in academic journals. Only studies involving soccer players (professionals and amateurs, except goalkeepers) were included in this review.

Results and Conclusion: Studies included in this review concluded that caffeine might act in several ways in glucose metabolism; however, more researches are necessary to elucidate the real effects of this compound in the organism.

Keywords:

Diabetes mellitus, glucose control, glycemia, insulin, metabolism, pancreatic cells.
