How Weight Training Can Help Prevent DiabetesWeight lifting as part of your weekly health routine can improve your circulation and help to avoid Type II Diabetes. Talk to your health care provider for information.

According to researchers, weight lifting can help to prevent diabetes. Lifting five days per week and for just 30 minutes each session can lower the risk of developing Type II Diabetes by about a third. While the researchers didn’t include women in their initial study, it is not unreasonable to believe that it would also be of benefit to them.

The study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health was printed in the publication ‘Archives of Internal Medicine.’ They studied more than 30,000 men over a period of 20 years and came to the conclusion that weight lifting is indeed beneficial to the body’s ability to process insulin. They also discovered, while conducting the same study, that those who added other forms of exercise to their weight lifting regimen had an even better result. Those who added aerobic exercise into their weekly routine were able to avoid Type II Diabetes in over 50 percent of the time.

For best results, there is a definite advantage in beginning exercise routines while young and continuing throughout your lifetime. Like financial investing, beginning early will provide a better outcome in later years. If you have been inactive for several years and are approaching later years, it’s never too late to begin. There is a benefit in exercise no matter how late you start. If you are already diagnosed with Type II Diabetes or have been dealing with Type I Diabetes you have most likely heard from your health care provider that exercise will be of great benefit to you.

Circulation concerns are aided by the moving of blood through your bloodstream. When you become active, your blood is more easily oxygenated as it travels along its continuous route. Keeping your blood flowing strong helps to avoid some of the more common afflictions that befall diabetic patients. Many complications are caused by poor circulation so exercising to produce better blood flow is an excellent way to stay healthy.

As always, be sure to contact your health care provider to inquire about the benefits that exercise including weight lifting and aerobics can have for you as part of your individual health routine. If you have not been active you’ll need to start slowly and gradually build up your strength and endurance. Just like any other exercise routine, it will be best implemented over a period of time.
