Issue 4 – Winter 2016

When our staff asks us the question, “Is exercise really beneficial for our patients?” I am always saying yes, but I want to have some research and statements to back me up medically. After a long and exhaustive online library search of PubMed Central® (our source of all medical articles in medical journals), I can feel justified in my statement that exercise is beneficial for all people.

According to the CDC, it is noted that exercise is very important in controlling many health conditions such as diabetes, heart failure, and high cholesterol. If a person can participate in moderate exercise of 75-150 minutes a week ALONG WITH diet, the majority of patients with diabetes will find in 6-12 months a decline in hemoglobin a1c that can vary from 0.3 to 1.2% depending on a variety of studies from 2000-2015.
