Controlling Diabetes with Exercise New Findings

A new study done on individuals with type II diabetes finds that a combination of aerobic exercise and resistance training may offer the best improvements of HbA1c levels. This study compared the combination exercise to both aerobic alone, resistance exercise alone, or no exercise at all. In the research study the over 250 study subjects were put on a nine-month exercise program that included either aerobic exercise alone, resistance training alone, a combination of both, or no exercise. The exercise groups performed their prescribed program just three times per week. 63% of the subjects were women making this one of the first studies to have a significant effect on women with diabetes. The research done by Dr. Timothy Church at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge will appear in the Journal of the American Medical Association later this year and is part of the preventative medicine biomedicine research group. During the study period the individuals on the combination exercise program had an easier time keeping their HBA1c levels below 7% the generally recommended level for individuals with type II diabetes. In addition fewer people in the combination exercise group needed to take more medications over the study time period than the other three groups. While previous research has highlighted that exercise can dramatically improve both diabetic and non-diabetics health; this research is some of the first to look at optimizing a specific type of exercise program for type II diabetic individuals. Given a limited amount of time any individual has to invest in exercise, say the editorial accompanying the research paper, it is more beneficial to do a combination of aerobic exercise and resistance training rather than simply one type of exercise. It is also important to note, says Dr. Ronal Sigal, who reviewed the paper and participated in the editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Assocation, that when the researchers followed up with the subjects after the study had finished, those on the combination exercise program still had the lowest diabetes medication use. By keeping medication us low, the chances of those individuals having a healthier, longer life, is enhanced greatly. According to Dr. Church, doctors can now look at individuals diagnosed with type II diabetes and tell them that the best prescription for exercise includes a combination of aerobic and resistance training.

Agein Corporation Responds to Findings: Prolonged Sitting Leads to Death and Disease


Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 30, 2015

Agein.com, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is weighing in on a recent study that found that prolonged periods of sitting can lead to death and disease. Agein.com also announces the top strategies to help reduce the amount of time spent sitting.

“It isn’t uncommon for people to spend the better part of their day sitting. Many go from the car to the office to back in the car to the dinner table, then spend the rest of the evening watching TV on the couch,” says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin, Agein.com’s anti-aging and health and wellness specialist. “In fact, it’s believed that an average person literally spends half their day sitting. Unfortunately, new data suggest a sedentary lifestyle could be killing us.”

Researchers in Toronto analyzed data pooled from 41 international studies and found that prolonged periods of sedentary behavior were associated with a 15% to 20% higher risk of death from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer and as much as a 90% increased risk of developing diabetes. (Source: Ubelacker, S., “Sitting for too long can kill you, even if you exercise: study,” CBC web site, January 19, 2015; http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/sitting-for-too-long-can-kill-you-even-if-you-exercise-study-1.2918678.)

Dr. McLaughlin explains that the data are adjusted for the effects of regular exercise. While regular exercise, a healthy diet, and a daily personal care regimen are important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, engaging in 30 to 60 minutes of exercise does not mean individuals can relax for the rest of the day.

“Staying healthy is about balance. In order to really lower the risk of disease and premature death, people need to incorporate more anti-aging fitness into their schedule and reduce the amount of time they spend sitting down,” he adds. “In addition to exercising, people need to make a conscious effort to reduce the amount of time they sit in a 12-hour day by at least two to three hours.”

“There are a number of easy strategies everyone can incorporate into their day to help keep them moving. For instance, if someone works at a desk all day, they should make a point of taking a short two-minute walk once an hour, and if they work in an office building, they should skip the elevator and take the stairs. And when watching TV, people should use commercial breaks to walk around,” Dr. McLaughlin concludes. “It doesn’t take a lot to effort to make a big lifestyle change; everyone just needs to make a concerted effort to move around, eat healthy, and get a good night’s sleep.”
