Keep your health up to date (betes)

On November 14th, the world comes together to raise awareness and educate about diabetes. This date is an important opportunity to highlight the importance of physical activity in the management and control of diabetes, improving quality of life and reducing complications. Let's explore why physical activity is a powerful ally in the fight against diabetes and how you can benefit from it. Benefits of Physical Activity for People with Diabetes 1. Blood Sugar Control Physical activity helps the body use insulin more effectively, which results in more stable blood sugar levels. This is especially important for those with type 2 diabetes, which is often associated with insulin resistance. 2. Improves Insulin Sensitivity Regular exercise can increase the body's sensitivity to insulin, allowing cells to more easily capture glucose from the blood, which is essential for controlling diabetes. 3. Weight Control Maintaining a healthy weight is vital for those with diabetes. Physical activity helps burn calories, control weight and reduce body fat, which helps improve insulin sensitivity. 4. Reducing the Risk of Complications Regular exercise can help reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and kidney problems. 5. Improved General Well-Being Exercise releases endorphins, which improve mood, reduce stress and increase the feeling of well-being, contributing to emotional balance, which is so important for managing diabetes. World Diabetes Day Awareness World Diabetes Awareness Day is an occasion to remind everyone, not just those living with diabetes, about the importance of prevention, early diagnosis and appropriate management.
