Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) currently affects approximately 20% of the population [1]. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that by 2050, approximately 1 in every 3 adults will be diagnosed with the disease [1]. This disease is characterized by insulin resistance, or the inability to properly use insulin (hormone released from the pancreas) to control blood glucose levels. This is different than type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease) that targets pancreatic B-cells and compromises their ability to produce insulin [2]. Let’s take a look at the pathophysiology of T2DM and the impact of exercise, specifically resistance training in managing this disease. The following are key points in the clinical diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes mellitus: • A person’s fasting blood glucose (FBG) levels are greater than or equal to 126 mg/dL or blood glucose levels greater than or equal to 200 mg/dL after an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) [3]. • Diagnosis of “pre-diabetes” can be made when FBG are between 100 and 125 mg/dL or blood glucose levels are between140 and 199 mg/dL after an OGTT [3]. • Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) levels (referred to as the A1c test) used to Continue reading >>

    I say I don't believe that. Why wouldn't it make a person's BG drop? It stimulates the pancreas to create insulin, it also helps stop the absorbtion of some of the carbs we eat. Maybe it doesn't stimulate the pancreas as much? Not sure. I do know of 1 man at work that is NOT diabetic and takes it and he has no problems, but, he eats normally.
    If that were me, I would test my blood, but, maybe only if I felt funny.
