Controlling Weight to Prevent or to Control Diabetes

We do not lack facts in this arena. There are a number of research proving that people are reversing diabetes by losing weight and keeping it off. Extra weight is bad for several reasons, including blood sugar control. One step that we can take to control diabetes is to lose weight.

There is a study where the participants were placed on a special diet and they were diabetic-free after two years of weight control. It must, however, be emphasized that once we start to pack on that weight again, then diabetes will once again raise its ugly head. Take a look at the article below:

Cycling for Weight Loss to Control Diabetes

Some years back I found some valuable information about cycling and diabetes. A study was done and they discovered that people who cycled consistently reduced the possibility of ever developing diabetes. Here we are talking about 20%.

Numbers reduced when people rode their bikes to work. My experience has been that my blood pressure and sugar are better controlled when I ride consistently for at least five days. Anything less than this only boosts my energy and leaves me feeling generally happy.

Cycling is Healthy, but Can It Prevent Diabetes?

There are times when we feel like cycling is not for us because of aches and pain or simply that we are maturing. Those are not to deter us at all and the inventors of exercise machines have left us without excuses.

Bikes were created with seats and handle to ensure our comfort and that our aging and more mature brothers and sisters can also indulge and enjoy riding. Have you ever heard about the recumbent bike? For more information, please click and read the article below:

    For a start, thank you for sharing this out here. You know the problem with diabetes is that most people I know that have it hot to know about it very late. Hence it becomes more difficult to treating it. Hence seeing something like this and getting adequate knowledge on what ought to be avoided and wat tobe done specifically to ensure we all stay ahead of getting into this pit of diabetes too is great here. Thanks

    Thanks so much for sharing a good article to read to know more about the steps to control diabetes and how to do it.

    As I’m growing older, and with lots of information about diabetes and health problems that it can cause, I would like to take a few steps and make some change of bad habits as not doing enough exercise.

    Your article helped me to learn more about the benefits of doing exercise and keep myself in the right weight and better health, and as winter is coming, it won’t be possible to go out for a walk or for jogging, but your idea of doing stationary bicycle is good for me, as it can be done indoors during winter.

    My question would be: how often and for how long each session?

      I try to be active for at least 5 days out of the week.  I am not always diligent.  For me, as long as  I am active, I don’t count the time.  I stop when my body starts to complain.  I think the recommendation is a minimum of 30 minutes per day.  “Listen to your body” is what I use as my guide.  All the best and do enjoy.

    The topic is brilliant.  

    Society should be informed about DM as much as possible, the life style, regular exercise, and a proper diet is a must do in controlling it for now but hopefully one we day manage to treat it rather than control it

    Keep up the great work. Really enjoyed this topic as someone who works in a medical field, Cheers!

      I know of people who had diabetes reversed.  to be honest though, once you return to your pre-diabetic lifestyle, then it returns.  I appreciate your kind words.  Thank you.
