Diabetics Can Improve Their Blood Sugar Control With... Exercise Combos

As if it's totally new information, ah? Of course exercise produces great benefits to anybody who engages in it actively and regularly. It is a known fact that an active lifestyle benefits many areas of our lives: emotional, physical, psychological.

What made me to write this short post is that this new clinical study proved that HbA1c – which is a blood marker for Type II diabetes – has improved significantly when people with Type II diabetes used exercise combos like weightlifting and aerobic activities.

Those who just did only weightlifting or aerobic activity did get great improvements. However, those improvements were shadowed by the combo exercises.

What a great piece of information! It gives more stimulus and results to those living in a diabetic world. It is not easy to live with this condition. However, each person can and should take on board this study's outcomes as a new driving force in their daily lives.
