Exercise and type 2 diabetes
Fact: diabetes has become a widespread epidemic.
Fact: PA physical activity is a key element in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes.
Fact: it is now well established that participation in moderate PA physical activity improves glucose control and can prevent or delay T2DM along with positively affecting blood lipids, blood pressure, cardiovascular events, mortality and quality of life.
Structured interventions combining PA and modest weight loss have been shown to lower T2DM by up to 58% in High Risk populations.
Most benefits of PA on diabetes management are realized through acute and chronic improvements in insulin action, accomplished with both aerobic and resistance training.
