is a condition where the insulin production or efficiency in the
body has been compromised. There are two main types of diabetes
and an emerging third type. The disease has a genetic origin but
is hugely dependent on lifestyle factors. It affects over 2.5 million
people in the UK alone and millions more worldwide.
is typified by an inability to control blood sugar levels (glucose)
It is associated with high resting blood sugar. The disease has
been linked with an increased chance of heart disease and stroke.
There are two main types of diabetes.
I - This is when the body is unable to produce insulin because the
insulin producing cells have been destroyed. The causes remain unclear
but the condition usually develops in childhood. It can also occur
from poor management of type II diabetes.
II - This is caused by the body producing faulty and inefficient
insulin. Known as insulin resistance the body can still produce
some insulin but not all of it can be used and thus the blood sugar
levels are not controlled as optimally as they should. This condition
is correlated to a large number of factors which include obesity,
ethnic group (Asian and afro Caribbean's are five times more susceptible
than whites), activity level, family history and age.
III - This new type of diabetes is when the type I diabetic who
injects insulin begins to develop insulin resistance as in type
II diabetes. It is linked to poor control of lifestyle factors while
living with the condition.
there may be a genetic origin, type II diabetes, which is the most
prevalent form, (80% of sufferers) is almost exclusively linked
to lifestyle factors and thus under the control of your actions.
I diabetes is treated with insulin injections and by following the
recommendations of a healthy lifestyle. Type II diabetes is addressed

in the population at large is because of serious failings of the
healthy diet and the lifestyle recommendations being too narrow.

Aerobic exercise increases insulin sensitivity and thus aids your
condition. Weight training, stretching and core exercises all aid
weight loss and general health. To truly get the benefits from exercise

of how to vary your training from week to week and month to month.
