Exercise for Type 2 Diabetes 

A University of Queensland research study

Background of Study:

Exercise is seen as a vital component for the prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus due to its ability to regulate blood sugar levels with little to no unwanted side effects. Physical exercise also has a number of other benefits which improve overall health and which also lowers the risk of developing other diseases which could occur as a result of type 2 diabetes such as cardiovascular disease. Therefore, regular exercise is seen as an effective strategy for the management of type 2 diabetes.
