Diabetes is a serious condition causing high blood glucose levels, but it is treatable with appropriate medical management and lifestyles changes.
Exercise has numerous benefits for people with diabetes, including lowering blood glucose levels and boosting insulin sensitivity, which counters insulin resistance. Studies show that all forms of exercise, including aerobic, resistance, and combined training, are equally effective in lowering HbA1c values. Combining resistance training and aerobic exercise can be more beneficial. People with diabetes who meet their personal exercise guidelines reduce their risk of all cause mortality by 30-50%.
