How to Exercise Right if You Have Diabetes
I often recommend exercise for the prevention and management of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. In my opinion, exercise is vital to improve health outcomes. To more closely examine the issue of exercise and how it relates to the management of type 2 diabetes, let’s take a look at the results from a recent study.
The study, published in Diabetes Care, evaluated 262 high-risk, obese patients with type 2 diabetes and randomly placed them in one of four groups. Group one was the control group which did no exercise; group two only performed cardiovascular fitness; group three was the resistance-only group; and the fourth group performed a combined program consisting of resistance and cardio exercises.
