Exercise Key in Control of Type 2 Diabetes

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - People with type 2 diabetes 
may go a long way in managing their condition if they 
take up regular exercise, a new research review shows. 

Researchers found that when they combined the results 
from 103 studies, there was clear evidence that lifestyle 
changes helped people with type 2 diabetes gain better 
control over their blood sugar. 

But while diet, exercise and medication are all vital to 
diabetes management, exercise alone was effective in these 

In fact, the review found, studies that focused only on 
boosting exercise levels yielded greater benefits than 
those that tried to change patients' diets, exercise 
habits and medication adherence all at once. 

The findings "could mean that it is easier for people to 
focus on one thing at a time," lead study author Dr. Vicki 
Conn said in a statement. "It is easy for people to get 
overwhelmed when asked to make too many changes." 

Conn and her colleagues at the University of Missouri-
Columbia report the findings in the journal Diabetologia. 

For their study, the researchers combined the results of 
103 studies that involved a total of 10,455 adults with 
type 2 diabetes, a disorder in which the body cannot 
properly use the blood-sugar-regulating hormone insulin. 

Type 2 diabetes is closely linked to obesity, and diet, 
exercise and adherence to medication are the cornerstones 
of managing the disease. But Conn's team found that blood 
sugar improvements were twice as great in studies that 
focused on exercise alone than in those that tried to 
improve diet, exercise and medication adherence. 

Importantly, the researchers point out, exercise helped 
study participants regardless of their weight or how poor 
their blood sugar control had been in the past. 

"The improvements from exercise," Conn said, "were equal 
across the board."
