Stump Agency Taxable No Easy Diabetes
Researchers from the University of California at Los Angeles revealed, body built like a bodybuilder can reduce the risk of insulin resistance. In diabetics, insulin resistance can lead to elevated levels of blood sugar, causing complications.
When looking at the 13,600 visitors to the gym, the researchers proved that the risk is influenced by the increase in muscle mass. Each increase of 10 percent, the risk of insulin resistance fell 11 percent and the risk of pre-diabetes rutun 12 percent.
A sports medical expert from Old Dominion University, Sheri Colberg-Ochs, PhD explains the relationship by describing how sugar is processed in the muscle. When exercising, muscles take sugar in glucose form to be processed as a power source.
The results are then processed glucose stored in muscle is a new compound called glycogen. If the greater muscle mass, space to store more glycogen that can be processed sugar more and this can reduce blood sugar levels.
Conversely, if a little muscle mass, glucose will not be processed into glycogen for storage space is limited. As a result of excess glucose will be stored as fat, which if piled up over time can lead to resistance or impaired insulin function.
According to Colberg-Ochs, the most effective exercise to increase muscle mass is a sport that involves muscle fibers as much as possible in one fell swoop. As quoted from MensHealth.com, Friday (5/8/2011), for example, is push-ups or lifting weights with 8-12 repetitions per set.
