This video is a great example of how the simple act of changing a few things can drastically change your glucose health.
In this video, Dr. John W. Davis of the University of Colorado at Boulder talks about the value of using exercise to improve insulin sensitivity. Dr. Davis has been conducting clinical trials on the effectiveness of exercise on both diabetes and high blood pressure for over a decade now. The first of these trials was a study he conducted in 1998, which involved people with diabetes. The trials were all negative, so it wasn’t until 2002 that Dr. Davis’ research team found a solution.
Exercise improves insulin sensitivity, which is the process that stops your body from having to produce more and more insulin to keep your blood sugar levels in check. But this is also a process that can cause you to lose muscle and fat. The key then is to find an exercise prescription that provides the best possible blood glucose-lowering effects while also leading to a reduction in fat. So it sounds like a recipe for success.
The Davis team found that a high-glycemic diet (a diet that raises your blood sugar too quickly) was a problem for diabetics. But as the researchers point out, the glucose-lowering effects of exercise were only effective if the exercise led to a lower blood sugar level. So with that in mind, they looked at the effects of a low-glycemic diet on the metabolic rate of over 90,000 people.
If you’re someone who has type 2 diabetes, or is expecting to have children, you’re probably wondering whether you’ve got enough sugar in your diet. While most of us think of sugar as something sweet to eat, the truth is it’s a key player in the way our bodies function. Glucose is the sugar in our blood. It’s what gives our cells their energy.
So its important that we eat healthy, which in turn is important because glucose is important in how we do just about everything. For example, its what gets our body’s immune system going, so if we’re low on sugar we have to make sure we get our blood sugar balanced.
Glucose is also what gets our blood to our brains and keeps it there for longer. Glucose is the building block of the brain, so we have to eat a lot of glucose to keep our brain healthy. This is what keeps us from getting diabetes, the most common type of diabetes. The other thing that glucose does is help keep our muscles strong.
You can’t just have a little sugar and be healthy. We all know it can cause diabetes and heart disease. It can also cause the brain to be out of balance. So we have to eat a lot of glucose to keep our brain and body healthy.
The good news is that we can change our glucose levels through proper nutrition and exercise. So if you want to lose some weight or just better your health (or both), eat a lot of carbohydrate or exercise a lot.
We don’t all fit into one group of people. It’s important to remember that we are all different. Some people have diabetes, some people are obese. Some people are lean, some people are athletic, etc. But that’s not the case for everyone. We all have our own unique set of needs and desires. We are all unique, even if we might not be.
