Exercise for Diabetes Care

> People with diabetes can participate in all levels of exercise, even at high levels of competition. Avoid, however, the extreme and risky sports. The exercise has immediate and long-term beneficial effect on blood glucose and the metabolism of lipids and proteins.

The regular aerobic exercise reduces visceral fat and pounds, improves tissue sensitivity to insulin and helps to control blood sugar, pressure.

It is best to avoid more endurance of one hour without a break, even moderate. We prefer regular aerobic exercise of low to moderate intensity, which would be appropriate to continue in all ages and for all our lives!

Exercise for type 2 is an essential component of treatment, but need a good education, because the risk of hypoglycemia is a real and serious.

For type 1 is insulin-dependent, not only the real risk of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia caused by dehydration, if not accompanied by diabetic may then be quite dangerous for our life situation.

It was very good education, both to prevent and to deal with such situations, not only gives freedom to savor the joy of sport and games, but it can save both our lives.

Exercise for people with type 1 diabetes care:
The exercise certainly helps to improve metabolic control, which decreases quickly and dramatically the risk of cardiovascular events, but not necessarily lead to improved glycemic control and regulation of glucose alone.

Insulin levels in our blood, and hence the risk of hypoglycemia, defined by the type of insulin dose point and the time it was last injection. Knowledge of insulin means that we use the time begins to act, the duration of action, but also the peak time of action. Hypoglycemia may occur during exercise and 12 to 24 hours.

Hypoglycemia occurring during exercise requires high amounts of carbohydrates. It seems that back, so it is good to take half a light carbohydrate meal a half hours later. Repeated low blood sugar lead to a vicious circle must stop exercising. If our blood sugar> 250mg need to think again and certainly not exercisable if> 300mg.

Exercise in type 2 Diabetes treatment...
* A good exercise program includes 5'-10 'warm, 20'-30 "gradually increasing exercise intensity, 10' minimum relaxation. During the warm and relaxing it is advisable to apply several dimensions.
* The exercise in people with type 2 diabetes saves lives!
* Both metabolic and glycemic control improved significantly with exercise. While growing and helps weight loss, but studies are estimated to prevent 1 to 3 to 4 strokes. However, studies estimate only 16% of type 2 diabetes have more than one hour of exercise per week.
* The risk of hypoglycemia is less, but use caution if insulin-secretory anti-diabetic tablets better measure our blood sugar before or during if the exercise will last for> 1 hour.
* Instead of high sugar prices will improve dramatically after exercise.

Exercise and attention in diabetes treatment...
* Great attention to extreme temperatures hot or cold, it is advisable to avoid exercise.
* Warning! Especially the shoes we use, especially if coexisting peripheral neuropathy.
* Attention to dehydration! A good general hydration program includes 2 glasses of water two hours before exercise, 1 to 2 glasses of water 30 minutes before and ½ cup water every 15 minutes about the exercise.
* Before starting the exercise and your blood sugar is <120mg% eat 20-60 grams. Simple carbohydrates, 1 cup orange juice or 1 medium piece of fruit or a slice of bread. You should count again sugar 20'-25 'then and not start exercising if not surpass the 110-120mg/dl.
* It is best to eat lightly for 2-3 hours before and after exercise.
* During vigorous exercise each about 30 minutes, eat 20-60g. simple carbohydrate.

Important think you have to do...

* Travel anywhere, any season means freedom. I know my body with the physiology and learn what to do to be good means to earn my own freedom...
* Cornerstone, not face any problem, knowledge of self and regular measurements of blood sugar, especially those using insulin.
* Respect your body and its limits, means avoiding excessive load on your body, avoid extreme sports, rest when feeling unwell or have a fever, frequent communication with our doctors.
* Moderate daily exercise, but people with picture prodigality reduces to 60% chances to develop diabetes over the next five years, and halved the risk of heart attack and stroke.
* Aerobic exercises are low to moderate intensity, lasting less than 1 hour, offer the greatest benefit for type 1 diabetes.
* The sport, sports, the sports, give not only physical benefits but also joy, satisfaction and wellbeing, contributing not only to good metabolic control but actually the high quality of our lives!
