DIABETES EXERCISE

Diabetes is one disorder wherein lifestyle modification (physical activity and healthy eating) plays as important role as medications to control sugar either orthodox med or our UDO2 HERBAL REMEDY FOR DIABETES formulated med. Regular exercise could bring about a change from "medical management" to "lifestyle management" in patients with Type 2 diabetes.

Regular exercise regimen in the diabetes-afflicted helps in the better control of blood sugar and reduces the demand for medication by 20%, this has been proven.

Exercise and medication is often advised as the only form of therapy in diabetes when the sugar level is between below 200 to 250 mg/dl, provided there are no complications like:

Damage to the blood vessels of the eye or retinopathy

Damage to the nerves and circulation to extremities or, neuropathy

Problems with kidneys or nephropathy

Heart related problems such as - angina

Patients with Type 2 diabetes, who regularly exercise, find that their blood glucose is better controlled, but on a day they miss their physical activity program, the glucose level tends to rise. Exercise is now considered an important tool for the long management of diabetes.

Physical activity of any type (e.g. walking, jogging, swimming, badminton, tennis or similar activity) should be incorporated into the daily routine. Choosing an activity that is enjoyable and is fun helps to sustain it over time. A variety of exercises must be selected and doing it with a partner or friend is helpful in avoiding boredom.

Nothing is to be found that can substitute for exercise even if you are not diabetic in any way…. Exercise will expel the harm done by most of the bad regimens that most men follow. Not all motion is exercise. Exercise is powerful or rapid motion or a combination of both, vigorous motion which alters breathing and increases its rate.

SUITABLE EXECRISE
No exercise program can be described as the ideal program. Each has its own advantages.

Walking
This is the safest, commonest and the cheapest form of physical activity. All one needs to invest in is a pair of good walking shoes and sports socks. It can be done by people of any age and anywhere. It is ideal for people not used to physical activity. It is the warming up or cooling down activity of choice.

Jogging
Some prefer to jog since it is more fun. It is more intense and requires lesser time than walking for the same amount of exercise. Comfortable pair of shoes, preferably with extra cushion should be used. Jogging on hard surface should be avoided. The footwear should be replaced much before it wears off. For one to get into a jogging habit, it is better to walk first (warm up) and jog for a few minutes and then walk again, repeat the process, and finally walk at the end as mentioned in cool down phase.

Using weights
This uses large muscles that burn more calories. This can include using small weights in the gym or health club. One should begin with light weights and then increase the weights gradually. As one becomes stronger more weights can be lifted. It helps to reduce osteoporosis and builds muscles especially in the elderly. It also decreases the risk of heart attacks. This type of exercise increases glucose uptake by the muscles and enhances their ability to store glucose.

A number of individuals may not adhere to the exercise program due to various reasons:

Ignorance about the benefits of exercise

Fear of accidents from exercise

Inability to adapt to some of the lifestyle changes that exercise requires

No moral support from family or friends

Chronic illness

Old age

In such cases, an alternate exercise program, such as walking 10 minutes every hour or every other hour in the house, cleaning the house, gardening and doing extra chores around the house can help.
