  • What is diabetes Mellitus?

    Image 01

    A condition characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from the body`s inability to use blood glucose for energy. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas no longer makes insulin and therefore blood glucose cannot enter the cells to be used for energy. In type 2 diabetes, either the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body is unable to use insulin correctly.

    Prediabetes:

    A condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but are not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. People with pre-diabetes are at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes and for heart disease and stroke. Other names for prediabetes are impaired glucose tolerance and impaired fasting glucose. Research has shown that if you are pre-diabetic and overweight the most effective way to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes is to lose weight. Even small decreases in weight through diet and exercise can have a big impact as it reduces your risk for developing diabetes by a whopping 58 percent!


    Recent Research

    We realize that having just been diagnosed, some good news goes a long way. The good news is that the research indicates that when a person loses weight when they are first diagnosed they have fewer negative health effects, live longer and enjoy a higher quality of life!

    Talking to your doctor about exercise

    Your doctor or physical therapist can help you find a suitable exercise routine. Ask:

    • How much exercise can I do each day and each week?
    • What type of exercise should I do?
    • What exercises or activities should I avoid?
    • Should I take medication at a certain time around my exercise routine?
