Exercise is really important for people who
have diabetes; both Type I and Type II. The way it helps the person with Type I; is it
helps to open up the blood; blood vessels and increase circulation to the extremities
which are often compromised by high blood sugars. Exercise helps to raise the HDL which
is the good cholesterol and lower the LDL which is the bad cholesterol. And in most
people with Type II diabetes, there is the HDL; the good cholesterol is very low and
the LDL is very high. So, it helps to correct that ratio. With the person who has Type II
diabetes, exercise is extremely important because it works like diet. It reduces the
insulin on responsiveness. It makes the cells more responsive to insulin again. And exercise
by itself can often replace diabetic medication.
