Can This Help Against Type 2 Diabetes? (New Study)

By  

A new study suggests that walking for 15 minutes after every meal might help you getting your blood sugar issue under control.

If you’re at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, then take a 15-minute walk after every meal.

A study shows that walks after meals work as well at regulating overall blood sugar in adults with pre-diabetes as a 45-minute walk once a day.

“You eat a meal. You wait a half-hour and then you go for a 15-minute walk, and it has proven effective in controlling blood sugar levels, but you have to do it every day after every meal. This amount of walking is not a prescription for weight loss or cardiovascular fitness — it’s a prescription for controlling blood sugar,” says the study’s lead author Loretta DiPietro, professor and chair of the department of exercise science at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services.

Currently, almost 26 million children and adults (8.3% of the population) in the USA have diabetes, and about 79 million Americans have pre-diabetes. In diabetes, the body does not make enough of the hormone insulin, or it doesn’t use it properly. Insulin helps glucose (sugar) get into cells, where it is used for energy. If there’s an insulin problem, sugar builds up in the blood, damaging nerves and blood vessels. (source)
