A recent study put out by the American Physical Therapy Association concludes that “Physical therapist-directed exercise counseling combined with fitness center-based exercise training can improve muscular strength and exercise capacity in people with type 2 diabetes, with outcomes similar to those of supervised exercise…” So it is nothing new and no suprise that I am pro-exercise. I always harp on just getting out and taking a walk but now, here is some data to back my point.
Type 2 diabets generally leads to a decline in muscular strength and exercise capability, among the other health complications. But things can be altered with a great attitude, workout schedule, and strong eating habits. Maintaining and improving upon muscular strength is crucial to preventing loss of physical function. Constult your doctor or physical before beginning any rigourous exercise program.
