Share This Post Diet and Exercise Resistance Training Reduces Diabetes Risk By Robbi D on February 23, 2019 No Comments Exercising harder, with high intensity and shorter duration, has positive effects on overweight men. A six-week training program consists of 15-minute exercise sessions every week. The intense workouts improve strength, muscle mass, and insulin sensitivity. About 90% of obese or overweight people have Type II diabetes and the authors of the program can apply to Type II diabetic patients. According to the program’s results, short-duration episodes of exercise and exhaustion is just as efficient in enhancing insulin sensitivity as resistance exercises that last for 45 minutes. Short high-intensity exercises are more achievable and appealing to people who have a busy lifestyle. People with Type II diabetes develop a resistance to insulin, which is a pancreatic hormone that helps absorb glucose from the bloodstream and convert it to energy. With insulin resistance, blood sugar levels rise to dangerous levels. APPL 1 is a protein that improves insulin sensitivity in the muscles and adjusts blood glucose levels in the body’s adipose cells. Though the process is unclear, studies have shown that APPL 1 expression in the liver and insulin resistance in the body improve with aerobic exercises. A team of researchers studied how APPL 1 expression in rats is affected by resistance training. As you know, resistance training is an exercise that makes muscles bigger. In the study, the scientists compared non-diabetic rats and a model of Type II diabetes. One leg of the subjects went through three resistance training practices for six weeks. Their other leg was not exercised at all. The APPL 1 of the diabetic rats went down and their insulin resistance went up. The team was able to pinpoint four individual pathways that were activated through resistance exercise, which then improved APPL 1 expression. The results gathered suggested that a mechanism for achieving enhancements in insulin sensitivity through movements in resistance training. The insulin sensitivity magnified was that of the rats with Type II diabetes.
