Exercise Beats Back Type 2 Diabetes

Exercise Beats Back Type 2 Diabetes

Michael Zook

Diabetes is becoming more common throughout the country and the world due to the rising obesity epidemic. Type II Diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, affecting 90% to 95% of the 26 million Americans with diabetes. Type II Diabetes Mellitus can over time damage the nerves and small blood vessels of the eyes, kidneys, and heart and lead to atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries that can cause heart attack and stroke.

 

Although new research is showing that performing a regular exercise routine can reduce and possibly reverse the long term effects of type II diabetes. This article written by April Durrett talks about the effects exercise has when regularly performed in people with Type II diabetes.
