Type-2 diabetes: This simple exercise could prevent high blood sugar spikes.
TYPE-2 diabetes symptoms can be reduced by making changes to your lifestyle. Here’s an exercise which can prevent high blood sugar spikes.
Type-2 diabetes is a lifelong condition which affects at least 3.7 million people in the UK.
This is when a person’s blood sugar levels increase, with symptoms that include weight loss and blurred vision.
However, there are a number of ways to reduce type-2 diabetes, including the diet you follow.
Another good way to prevent the condition is by keeping active. Here’s an exercise that could ward off symptoms.
According to the American Diabetes Association, tennis is a type of aerobic activity that’s beneficial to diabetic sufferers.
Aerobic exercise improves insulin resistance, as well as lowering blood sugar levels.
For benefits, it is advisable to not go more than two days without exercising and aim for five workout days in a week.
The American Diabetes Association said: “Aerobic exercise helps your body use insulin better.
“It makes your heart and bones strong, relieves stress, improves blood circulation and reduces your risk for heart disease by lowering blood glucose and blood pressure and improving cholesterol levels.
“Some examples of aerobic activities [include] brisk walking, dancing, swimming, playing tennis, [and] hiking.”
