Good news for Type 2 diabetics
Are you an adult suffering from Type 2 diabetes and trouble with mobility? New research says there's hope. You can improve your mobility through some positive lifestyle changes, weight loss and exercise.
In the 4-year study conducted by the Department of Health and Human Services published in The New England Journal of Medicine, more than 5,000 overweight or obese adults, who were between 45 and 75 years old with type 2 diabetes, were put into two different groups: intensive lifestyle intervention or diabetes education and support. It found that the lifestyle intervention group experienced a reduction of 48% in the risk of loss of mobility. Increased fitness and weight loss were considered to be major factors in this result.
Weight loss and improved fitness were found to slow the decline of mobility in overweight Type 2 diabetics. The study shows that by making healthy lifestyle changes, Type 2 diabetes sufferers can experience not only weight loss and improved health, but an overall improved lifestyle. These benefits are possible for anyone by making healthy choices.
