Know the best time to exercise to control blood sugar

It is not easy to determine, but if you want to control blood sugar, then it is best to exercise in the  afternoon or evening.

 

This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the Netherlands.

 

Exercise to control blood sugar

 

The study, from Lyden University Medical Center, found that exercising any time between noon and midnight reduced the risk of insulin resistance by 25 percent.

 

Insulin resistance occurs when muscle, fat, and liver cells have difficulty responding to insulin, which increases blood glucose levels.

 

If the amount of glucose in the blood is not kept under control, diabetes occurs over time.

 

The study involved people between the ages of 45 and 65 and initially examined blood glucose and insulin levels through their blood samples.

 

All of them were obese.

 

Trackers were worn for 4 days to monitor the physical activity of these people.

 

The results showed that physical activity between noon and night reduced the amount of fat in the liver and also reduced insulin resistance.

 

According to research, exercising in the afternoon or evening reduces insulin resistance by 18 to 25 percent.

 

Researchers say that physical activities at different times of the day are useful in terms of insulin sensitivity.

 

He said that further research will analyze what time of the day exercise may be better to prevent type 2 diabetes.

 

The results of this study were published in the journal Diabetologia.
