Show Notes

Exercise is good for your heart, great for your lungs, and amazing for your soul. It is also a great tool for reversing type 2 diabetes. When you exercise, your muscles use glucose for fuel. Additionally, this process happens without the need for insulin. This means lower blood glucose levels in a way that bypasses your insulin resistance. In studies, exercise combined with modest weight loss was more effective at improving the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in high-risk people than Metformin alone. WOW! During this podcast, I discuss the research on exercise and blood sugar control as well as review the guidelines. Finally, I provide some caveats to exercise that diabetics MUST consider.
