TYPE-2 Diabetes and Exercise


Diabetes is a chronic illness that affects the glucose levels in the blood. There are two types of diabetes; type 1 and type 2. Type 2 is the most common type. Type 1 diabetes occurs due to the lack or decrease of insulin production in the body whereas Type 2 diabetes occurs from insulin resistance. In Type 2 Diabetes, the body is producing insulin but the cells are not able to uptake it. This type of diabetes is also known as Non-insulin Independent Diabetes Miletus (NIDDM) or adult-onset diabetes. One of the primary causes of Type 2 diabetes or NIDDM is obesity and no exercise.

The symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes include weight reduction and increased thirst, hunger and urination. The patient may also suffer from blurred vision, infection in the vagina and tiredness. Science has traced the origin of type 2 diabetes to a mix of sedentary lifestyle and genetic factors. While we cannot do much about the genetics, the factors such as controlling diet and obesity are surely under human control. While you try to control your sugar level by keeping a track using blood glucose monitors.
[1], staying fit and active will also allow you to take better
control of your diabetic condition and maintain your blood glucose
level to the appropriate level. We have listed a few exercise hacks
for people who suffer from Type 2 diabetes, these hacks are as below:

·

TRY BRIEF WORKOUT SESSIONS:

If you do not find time for 30 minutes of exercise, you should try having brief workout sessions. For example, you can take a 5 minutes break from work and just start moving or
jogging around. Try to divide your 30 minutes workout into 5-6 small sessions. After each session, you will feel accomplished and close to your goal.

INCREASE GENERAL ACTIVITY:

little far from your home. Do not solely depend on this for exercise.
Always work in combination with the workout sessions.
