Dr. For the minority of diabetes sufferers diagnosed with Type 1, healthy food and exercise could not prevent their diabetes. Recently, a new parsimonious model of exercise effect on glucose homeostasis has been proposed that links the change in insulin action and glucose effectiveness to heart rate (HR). Data were analysed using repeated-measures analysis of variance. Don’t expect dramatic results overnight.
Bruce W. from Harvard University and an M.D. In the United States, adults are told to engage in “75 minutes of vigorous-intensity or 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week,” according to a Medical News Today article about World Diabetes Day. The model represents a step forward to accurately describe glucose homeostasis in normal life conditions; however, further studies are needed to validate it against data. Blood glucose at 3 h post-exercise was greatest with the 25% dose.
