03/13/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Thursday

I am constantly surprised by statistics about Type 2 Diabetes.  By definition, type 2 diabetes happens when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin (a hormone that helps cells convert both sugars and starches which is known as glucose, into energy.  http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/article/649276/type%202%20diabetes/105_million_in_us_have_diabetes_or_prediabetes_cdc_says.htm .  Because in people suffering from type 2 diabetes,  this doesn’t occur, glucose builds up in the blood which can lead to heart disease, stroke and kidney failure.  According to the Centers for Disease Controls estimates that 24 million people in the U.S. have the disease.

Exercise and dietary changes are the key to controlling type 2 diabetes with out medication.  Moving during the day reduces the enzyme that removes fat from the bloodstream (Fitness Magazine, Nov. 2010).  Try to get up from your desk for at least 5 minutes every hour.  Shake your legs out and reach your hands up to the sky and take 2-3 deep breaths in your nose and out through your mouth.  Understand though, that even with positive changes to your diet and moving more, you may still need to use medications.  One can move OUT of the type 2 diabetes range if you can reduce your glucose numbers.  Please see a physician to help monitor and to get information.
