Diabetes and Exercise
Most people focus on diet to manage diabetes. But to really manage diabetes well, you need a proper diabetes management plan that focuses both on diet and exercise. We’ve already told you how to manage your diet with diabetes. Here, you can see the benefits of exercise to help you manage diabetes.
Glucose is metabolized better in the body, when you exercise. More glucose is forced out of the blood stream and into the cells where it is used for producing more energy. Exercise increases the body’s efficiency, because it increases the tissue sensitivity to insulin in patients suffering from Type-2 Diabetes. When you are exercising, your muscles are in use, so they use up more blood glucose, helping to reduce blood sugar levels.
See how exercise helps in lower blood sugar levels:
- You lose calories when you exercise which helps in weight loss, and helps improve insulin sensitivity.
- Exercise will increase the circulation of blood in your arms and legs, the problem area with diabetics.
- Exercises helps in increasing HDL (good cholesterol) which helps in reducing the bad cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart attacks.
