New research has revealed that patients who suffer from Type 1 diabetes can now focus on improving their long-term health based on an exercise regimen that focuses on the same. The results of the research say that this was even more beneficial during the initial months of diagnosis.
The study revealed that patients who indulged in exercise in the immediate wake of their diagnosis could potentially delay signs of high blood glucose levels. This essentially means that the organ responsible for producing insulin that regulates blood sugar, the pancreas, can be made to remain healthy for a more prolonged period of time.
Type 1 diabetes is less manageable as compared to Type 2, since the former is triggered by an unhealthy diet and a failure to maintain a healthy exercise regimen. Doctors say that a major fraction of patients newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes have a brief timeframe in which the pancreas functions smoothly. Those who adapt a healthy lifestyle during this phase can extend the healthy function of the pancreas. Additionally, it could also reduce the onset of ancillary conditions related to the ailment.
