Diabetes may prove a hurdle for cyclists but it is not insurmountable because, at the end of the day, it is all about managing your food and your exercise routines. If done correctly, cycling as an activity can move from being just a leisure activity to a great ride to health. Indoor cycling is also good form of exercise. Aim for at least three cycling workouts each week, beginning with a short 30-min ride, which can be eventually increased to a moderate 45-min ride.
Cardio exercise not only helps you lose weight making diabetes management easier, but it can also help you control your sugar levels, too.
Also known as Aerobic exercise, it stands out among other regimes. Here's how. Studies show that adults with type 2 diabetes can achieve reduced blood sugar levels within 7 days of vigorous aerobic exercise. This manages sugar levels in the blood by burning extra glucose and reducing resistance to insulin, both of which are vital for diabetes control.
