Your Strength To Fight Diabetes

Aerobic exercise can improve blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes 300x225 Aerobic exercise can improve blood  sugar control in people with type 2 diabetesAerobic exercise and resistance (strength) training both help improve blood- sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes, but a combination of the two exercise forms is superior to either type alone, suggests a study in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Researchers randomized 251 diabetic adults, ages 39-70, to aerobic exercise on treadmills or stationary bicycles, resistance training on weight machines, both exercise regimens, or a sedentary control group. While all three exercise groups saw reductions in hemoglobin Aic (a measure of blood-sugar control) compared with the control group, those in the combined exercise group experienced even better results, the study authors reported.
