Regular exercise helps!
What is diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disease in which blood sugar levels do not remain constant. If you have diabetes, the insulin in your body is not in a position to maintain the blood sugar (blood glucose).
Cause and effect of diabetes
Its effects are high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Which in turn may lead to cardiovascular disease. Often the reason lies in an inactive lifestyle and unhealthy diet.
Research shows that regular exercise has a beneficial effect on general health. Physical activity lowers the risk of diabetes as well. If you are a diabetic and exercise regularly, there is a chance that you will require less medication.
