Getting Down To Basics with Resources

The Importance of Exercise in Reversing Type 2 Diabetes. Today there are a lot of people suffering from Type 2 diabetes. The incidence of diabetes may double or triple in the next 20 years according to study estimates. Today, there are a lot of research being conducted in the field of diabetes, yet the best treatment for this ailment is still diet and exercise. The American Heart Association has recommended that individuals who want to stay healthy should at least devote 150 minutes in moderate intensity aerobic exercises. But, when a person is diabetic, it is likely that more exercise is required. If you want to describe what moderate intensity aerobic exercise looks like, it is when you exercise and you are almost breathless and unable to speak comfortably in a full sentence. Jogging, brisk walking, swimming, and cycling are examples of this type of aerobic exercises. Tennis and badminton can also be included in this category.
5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Health
The question is how exercise can reverse Type 2 diabetes and there are a number of ways that are suggested. Below are some of the ways that exercise can help improve blood sugar control and possibly reverse Type 2 diabetes.
The Best Advice on Health I’ve found
The most common underlying mechanism in the development of diabetes is insulin resistance. This means that tissues in the body resist the actions of insulin. To provide the cells with energy, glucose absorbed from food is pushed into the cells by a hormone released by the pancreas which is insulin. If cells resist insulin, then they cannot get the glucose required for them to normally function. People who suffer from type 2 diabetes can improve their insulin sensitivity with aerobic exercise. Even though diabetics are required to do moderate intensity aerobic exercises, some who do only mild exercises have also observed an effect on their blood sugars. Research has also shown that a single round of aerobic exercise of moderate intensity can improve and enhance sensitivity to insulin for up to 72 hours. It takes daily exercise to maintain this positive effect. Obesity is a common problem in people with type 2 diabetes. Weight should be lowered over a short period of time so that you can control blood sugar easily. The truth is, some patients who have exercised regularly and have lost a good amount of weight have also been able to reverse their diabetes completely. With exercise, the heart muscles can be strengthened and its efficiency improved because it keeps it pumping at a fast rate. With exercise, cholesterol levels are reduced and this allows good blood pressure control. People with diabetes are more prone to heart disease but can be prevented by exercise. Blood glucose levels can be reduced by nearly 20% if individuals perform regular exercise. Exercise, combined with improved insulin sensitivity, can help individuals take complete charge of their blood sugar levels.
