13 Best Exercise Tips for Type 2 Diabetes People

Well to let you know on the simple thumb rule for diabetes, exercise has always been highly recommended. Shed away those inhibitions about exercise being unsafe and lethargic, as nothing beats the way a proper exercise can heal your body.
For most of the diabetic patients, diagnosed with the Type 2 variant, exercise is something that should be on top of your to-do list along with medications. Exercise is known to help curb the high blood sugar levels and keep the blood glucose levels in check. That helps a long way in stabilizing your body and keeping it off the risks.
But the thing with exercise is that it may seem daunting and intimidate at first. Should that stop you from bending your back then? No, it shouldn’t. However, we won’t advise you to directly dive into it straightaway too. How about starting with a low profile where we slowly build up the work rate? That’ll help better to calibrate ample exercise in your schedule.
We here would help you around with the list of best exercise tips that shall work wonders for you. Read along for ‘List of all the best Exercise Tips for Type 2 Diabetes People’, then.
1. A quick 30-minute workout is best
As a general recommendation, it is strongly advised to have around 30 minutes of workout every single day. A diabetic patient should be up and move during the time period. If you can persist with a single 30-minute session without break, that’s great. Otherwise, you can time it with breaks and make at least 30-minutes of working out in a day.
2. Indulge in various household chores
Rather than just going through a single Continue reading

Type 2 diabetes: Up to 74 Victorians a day being diagnosed

Type 2 diabetes: Up to 74 Victorians a day being diagnosed

New figures show the number of Victorians diagnosed with diabetes has reached the "critical mark" of 300,000 and another 500,000 people are at "high risk" of developing type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes Australia Victoria statistics show 27,000 Victorians were diagnosed with the disease last year, the equivalent of 74 cases a day.
Its chief executive Craig Bennett said he was very concerned about the figures.
In just two years' time, diabetes will be the leading cause of disease burden in Australia, overtaking heart disease.
While there is no cure for type 1 diabetes, which makes up about 10 per cent of cases, it is a different situation for type 2 diabetes.
It is know as a lifestyle disease, brought on by eating too much of the wrong food and not exercising enough.
"We do know from evidence that regular physical activity and a healthy diet can reduce the chances of people being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes by about 60 per cent," Mr Bennett said.
"We want all Victorians, whether they have diabetes or not, to eat well and be physically active," he said.
People with elevated blood glucose levels have pre-diabetes, which puts them at risk of developing the disease.
About 500,000 Victorians fall into that category and when combined with those who already have the disease, almost 800,000 people are affected.
"They're very challenging statistics," Mr Bennett said.
"We have our work cut out and we're very keen for people to get the message that they need to eat well, exercise regularly and reduce their chances of getting diagnosed with what is a very difficult and complex disease." Continue reading

The cost-effectiveness of primary care for Indigenous Australians with diabetes living in remote Northern Territory communities

The cost-effectiveness of primary care for Indigenous Australians with diabetes living in remote Northern Territory communities

Objective: To evaluate the costs and health outcomes associated with primary care use by Indigenous people with diabetes in remote communities in the Northern Territory.
Design, setting and participants: A population-based retrospective cohort study from 1 January 2002 to 31 December 2011 among Indigenous NT residents ≥ 15 years of age with diabetes who attended one of five hospitals or 54 remote clinics in the NT.
Main outcome measures: Hospitalisations, potentially avoidable hospitalisations (PAH), mortality and years of life lost (YLL). Variables included disease stage (new, established or complicated cases) and primary care use (low, medium or high).
Results: 14 184 patients were eligible for inclusion in the study. Compared with the low primary care use group, the medium-use group (patients who used primary care 2–11 times annually) had lower rates of hospitalisation, lower PAH, lower death rates and fewer YLL. Among complicated cases, this group showed a significantly lower mean annual hospitalisation rate (1.2 v 6.7 per person [P < 0.001]) and PAH rate (0.72 v 3.64 per person [P < 0.001]). Death rate and YLL were also significantly lower (1.25 v 3.77 per 100 population [P < 0.001] and 0.29 v 1.14 per person-year [P < 0.001], respectively). The cost of preventing one hospitalisation for diabetes was $248 for those in the medium-use group and $739 for those in the high-use group. This compares to $2915, the average cost of one hospitalisation.
Conclusion: Improving access to primary care in remote communities for the management of diabetes results in net he Continue reading

Diabetes programme ‘changing my life’

Diabetes programme ‘changing my life’

Amanda Paulos has struggled with type two diabetes for a decade.
But the 41-year-old said she was getting to grips with the chronic condition after joining a programme designed to reverse the disease.
The mother of four, from Smith’s, has lost weight, her average blood sugar readings have dropped and she was able to go off two of her medications.
Ms Paulos said: “In October, I had my HbA1c, which is a three-month average blood sugar reading, and I had that go down to 6.2 per cent.
“That is the lowest I’ve ever been at any time it’s ever been tested in my life and I cried tears of joy. That was down from 8.8 per cent in May.”
BDA diabetes educator Sara McKittrick explained that in someone who does not have diabetes the HbA1c should be under 6 per cent.
Ms Paulos, who also lost 14lbs, added: “I’ve gone from four medications down to two — that’s big news actually, very big news.”
She discovered she had gestational diabetes when she was pregnant with her second child, although she did not realise she had any symptoms.
Ms Paulos said: “I was tired, I was going to the bathroom a lot — these are just normal pregnancy things.”
It happened again when she was pregnant with her two youngest children.
She later went into a pre-diabetes phase and “sometime later type 2 diabetes”.
She said: “It’s quite a difficult thing to think about. I was very unhappy and I am sure many people will echo that.”
Ms Paulos visited dietitians and nutritionists with minimal success. Medications piled up until she was taking the maximums possible prescription.

Rising Diabetes Rates Are Costly for Employers

Rising Diabetes Rates Are Costly for Employers

Type 2 diabetes, characterized by high blood sugar and insulin resistance, and linked to unhealthy diets and a lack of regular exercise, is increasing among U.S. adults. That translates into high costs for employers—more than $20 billion annually due to unplanned, missed days of work.
The Cost of Diabetes in the U.S.: Economic and Well-Being Impact, a new report by Gallup researchers and Sharecare, a health and wellness engagement firm, was released to coincide with World Diabetes Day on Nov. 14.
November is also recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, among others, as National Diabetes Month, a time for promoting awareness about managing diabetes.
(Click on graphic to view in a separate window.)
Being obese (severely overweight) is a leading risk factor for developing diabetes, the report noted. People with diabetes have much higher rates of other chronic disease such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack and depression, and they are less likely to get regular exercise or engage in other healthy behaviors.
The findings are based on a subset of 354,473 telephone interviews with U.S. adults across all 50 states and the District of Columbia, conducted from January 2015 through December 2016 as part of the Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index. Diabetes cost analysis findings were drawn from research by the American Diabetes Association.
"While most clinicians agree that managing diabetes improves health and reduces medical costs, the benefit to employers also extends to a more productive workforce," said Sharecare Vice President Sheila Hol Continue reading
