Scientists have found that aerobic and strength exercises improve A1C levels in your blood. Having a healthy lifestyle and exercise lifestyle will help you control your diabetes. If you start a workout program it can lower your body mass and decrease the insulin resistance of type 2 diabetes. It was proven that type 2 diabetics who exercise regularly have better A1C (tracks the amount of hemoglobin that sticks to your blood) profiles. It is important to check your blood sugar levels before exercising. If your blood sugar levels range from 100 mg/dl to 250 mg/dl it is safe to work out. But if your blood sugar levels are below 100 mg/dl you should have a snack before you begin your workout activities.
I was determined to share my positive approach and not let diabetes stand in the way of enjoying my life.
We're all moving at such a high rate that we have to grab the frozen dinners and the McDonald's. We can't make it a way of life - we have to get back to real, simple, clean good foods. It will save our lives on so many levels; not just spina bifida, but obesity, diabetes, everything. Food is our medicine.
