Is There A Type Of Exercise That’s Best For Improving Insulin Sensitivity?

Although all exercise is beneficial for improving your health, is there one form of exercise that trumps all others in helping to stabilize blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity? Based on the latest research, it appears the answer may be yes. In today’s post I want to discuss what the research is showing and share with you my opinion based on personal experience. Before we dive right in I want to be perfectly clear with a few things up front. When I find a particular methodology with fitness training, nutrition strategy, etc, to provide a positive result and promote it for doing so, it doesn’t mean everything else is worthless or that I’m implying there’s only one solution. I want to clarify this to avoid the senseless debate that sometimes occurs. There are a lot of people, so called “experts” included, that have very rigid positions on matters involving diet, nutrition, fitness training, etc. A lot of times this is obviously done to sell products or services and I get that. The people who follow these “camps” take on the ideology and fervently defend that their way is best. This stuff is no different in a lot of ways than other subjects people frequen Continue reading >>

    I'm on the last pen of my first box of novolog. Up until now I've been keeping them in the fridge except in transport.... then my diabetes educator told me they are OK outside the fridge for 28 days. Super.... except for the first time I'm having problems with air bubbles in the pen. Earlier I spent a good 1/2 hour clicking the pen trying to get rid of the bubbles to no avail. This never happened when I kept it in the fridge....how dangerous is it to inject if there are air bubbles and could it be a sign that the insulin is bad? My sugars have been higher than normal today, but that could be from stress or feminine related issues. Sorry to be the obvious newbee w/ so many q's

    Hey thats what this place is all about. I was told that a small bubble would be absorbed by the blood and you really need a very large amount of air to do damage. I doubt the insulin is tainted but I wonder how the air got in there. Just test a hr to 2hr afterwards to be sure. If you still bothered by this take it back to the pharmacy for replacement. Dont feel foolish about asking anything please, thats what the forums all about.

    There's a difference in construction between a pen and a syringe where the fluid exits the device. With a syringe the syringe end of the needle is encased in plastic and you can purge the air from the syringe. This is because of its design. With a pen, the needle in the pen cap needs to puncture the seal so it's made to extend into the pen about .020 of an inch. Air bubbles are positively charged and the glass vial in a pen is negatively charged...that's why you'll see the air bubbles cling to the side of the glass vial. With the needle projecting into the center of the glass vial there's no way that a small air bubble...and they're all "small air bubbles" can enter the vial end of the needle. That's why you spent a half hour trying to get the bubble into the needle "with no avail". Pens also don't bottom out their plungers like a syringe will...therefore when the pen is empty...it still holds about 3 to 6 units of insulin that contain any air that the pen has taken on. Design-wise...it's virtually impossible to get air from a pen.
