The person that has type I or type II diabetes has to look at diet and exercise differently than someone who may see it as a personal choice. Eating the wrong foods, especially high amounts of sugar and carbohydrates, living a sedentary lifestyle, and being overweight are all factors that contribute to high blood sugars and an unhealthy body. According to the American Diabetes Association, the statistics for people living with diabetes are astounding:
  • 8.3% of the population has diabetes
  • 18.8 million are diagnosed
  • 7 million are diagnosed
  • 1.9 million over 20 years old were newly diagnosed in 2010.
  • 79 million with prediabetes
Many experts in the health field consider this disease of epidemic proportion. Of those diagnosed, it roughly affects men and women equally. In 2007, diabetes was a contributing factor in the deaths of over 231,000 people.

Living with Diabetes

No doubt, living with diabetes requires a significant lifestyle change, which is a challenge in itself. If you are newly diagnosed, or you are the spouse or family member of someone recently diagnosed, you have to find the drive and desire to commit to these changes:
  • Proper Diet
  • Regular Exercise
  • Weight Loss
  • Frequent Doctor Visits
  • Regular Medications
  • If You Smoke, Quit
  • Take Blood Sugar Readings Before and After Meals
What do all of these bullet points have in common? If you stick to the plan, you can monitor and control your circulation. In doing so, you have the opportunity to lower and maintain your blood sugars.

Benefits of a HomeBodies Diabetes Management Personal Trainer
The first obvious benefit of regular exercise for people with diabetes is long-term weight loss. If there is less of you, it is easier for your body to function properly. Quoting WebMD, exercise will help you manage your diabetes by:
  •     Improving Your Body's Use of Insulin.
  •     Maintain or Losing Weight
  •     Improves Muscle Strength
  •     Lowers Blood Pressure
  •     Lowers "Bad" Cholesterol
  •     Increases "Good" Cholesterol
  •     Improves Blood Circulation
  •     Increases Energy Levels
  •     Reduces Stress and Promotes Relaxation
When you exercise, the body has to use sugar (glucose) to feed the muscles. Regular and moderate exercise absorbs glucose as much as twenty times the normal rate. It is easy to see how high blood sugar levels are reduced with regular exercise. But not all exercise is the same, nor does it have the same effect on all diabetic's blood sugars. An intense workout is different than a long term moderate exercise session.

Every diabetic will react differently to exercise, especially if exercise is part of a new lifestyle change. Having a HomeBodies Diabetes management personal trainer is a major advantage towards learning how to do exercise properly. In a way, we are retraining your body on how to use and burn excess sugar.

Strength training has a profound effect on managing diabetes. Strength training promotes less body fat and stronger muscles. Aerobic and Cardio exercise programs raise your heart rate, which improves circulation. A regular exercise program of these two styles of exercise will help you lower and maintain your blood sugars.
