Exercise and Diabetes

Regular exercise can drastically reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Researchers found that men who did resistance training for 30 minutes five days a week lowered their risk of diabetes by 34 percent.
Adding aerobic exercise to their routines brought their risk down even further — by up to 59 percent.
 Even those who engaged in resistance training for less than an hour a week still lowered their risk of getting diabetes by a respectable 12 percent.
The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, shows that some exercise is always better than none — and that even if you can’t find time to work out five days a week, it shouldn’t prevent you from doing what you can when you can.
