12 Ιουλίου 2019, Being Active When You Have Type 2 Diabetes - ACSM
Strength training is important for people with diabetes because it builds muscle. Muscle tissue plays a big role in managing blood glucose, and you don’t have to be a body-builder! Plus, strength training can make daily activities like lifting laundry baskets or yardwork easier and safer.
Do you want to feel better, move better and sleep better? Experts now say that any physical activity counts toward better health – even just a few minutes! Being active is a great way to improve the way your body uses insulin and burn more calories to control your weight. Just one session of aerobic activity improves blood glucose (blood sugar) and insulin action up to 24 hours or longer!
