Exercise and Diabetes

Aerobic exercise is a great way to help control type 2 diabetes. Yet, you may not be reaping all the positive benefits of an effective type 2 diabetes exercise plan using just aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is terrific though— it can improve heart health and lower your risk for heart attack or stroke. However, strengthening your muscles is another important part of staying healthy when you have type 2 diabetes.

 

When you exercise with weights or other forms of resistance, it can be especially helpful for controlling your blood sugar. Resistance training also helps human skeletal muscles to become more sensitive to the body’s natural insulin. As you begin to develop more skeletal muscle your blood sugar levels may become less elevated. More muscle tissue may lead to greater glucose uptake and increased insulin sensitivity!
