Introduction: Type II diabetes is a chronic disease, which if not controlled properly, can have complications, such musculoskeletal complications. Kinematics studies of muscle endurance of patients with type II diabetes demonstrate lower muscle endurance in these individuals. The aim of this study was to evaluate the isometric endurance of hip extensor and abductor muscles in people with type II diabetes in two groups, i.e with and without the risk of peripheral neuropathy in comparison with healthy people. Method and Materials: Fifteen healthy subjects and 27 patients (in three groups) with type II diabetes (15 patients without peripheral neuropathy and 12 patients with peripheral neuropathy) participated in this study. Isometric endurance of the hip extensor and abductor muscles was recorded using the Biodex isokinetic machine and slope of the power diagram was calculated. Results: Results showed no significant differences for the diagram slope between the three groups in terms of hip extensor and abductor muscle endurance. (Extensor diagram slope, P=0.45) (Abductor diagram slope, P=0.63). Conclusion: Endurance related parameters of hip extensor and abductor muscles in patients with type II diabetes, with or without peripheral neuropathy, are not significantly different from those of healthy subjects. Hence, the isometric endurance test perse cannot describe muscle endurance in type II diabetic patients.
