Is it Possible to Control Blood Sugar Levels Without Medicine?

Scientists have advanced knowledge about the proteins that help control blood sugar, or glucose, during and after exercise, and this knowledge could lead to new drug therapies or exercises more effective for the prevention of Type 2 diabetes and other health problems associated with high levels of blood sugar.

Insulin resistance occurs when the body is not produced by properly stimulating the transport of glucose, a type of sugar inside the cells as an energy source. Too much glucose in the bloodstream can cause a variety of medical problems including Type 2 diabetes, said Gregory Cartee, a professor in the School of Kinesiology and principal investigator of the study. Katsuhiko Funai is the co-author, graduate student and researcher in the School of Kinesiology.

Insulin and muscle contractions are the most important stimuli that increase glucose transport into the interior of muscle cells. The cells can then use glucose for energy, said Cartee. But scientists do not know exactly how this works.

The group reacted Cartee watched two different proteins that were considered important in stimulating the transport of glucose by two different enzymes, linked also with the transport of glucose. The goal of this study was to understand the contribution of the two proteins, called AS160 and TBC1D1 in skeletal muscle stimulated by insulin.

“Trying to rule out or determine what proteins are important in the exercise,” said Cartee.

The results indicate that the protein TBC1D1 was the most important for the transport of glucose stimulated by exercise and suggested that the second protein, AS160, may be less important for this effect of exercise. Give attention to the protein works best, in this case the TBC1D1, scientists can develop methods for making proteins that work best for people with insulin resistance, Cartee said.

Insulin resistance is a major health problem affecting millions of people, he said.

“Almost all people with diabetes have Type 2 muscle resistance to insulin,” said Cartee. “This does not cause diabetes by itself, but it is an essential component that contributes to type 2 diabetes. This affects millions of people. Even people who are not diabetic insulin resistance is linked to numerous health problems. “

In the longer term people who have insulin resistance or whose muscles do not respond normally to insulin are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes, said Cartee.

“Apparently the muscles have the machinery to respond to exercise even if they do not respond normally to insulin. If we knew how the exercise could develop more effective protocols for exercise, “he said. “In other cases of people who can not exercise, we could design a drug therapy or something else to control insulin.…

The Latest Fitness Craze – Reviewed

I’ve reviewed several fitness fads, and I will be reviewing some more here. I’ll be explaining what they are and how beneficial they may be. Maybe you want to try a new workout routine today!

Piloxing – I haven’t tried this one, but, it looks like fun! Of course, I love anything with boxing in it! So, this newest workout routine is a cross between pilates and boxing. This concept was invented by Viveca Jensen, and I think it’s genius! It gives you an all over body workout, or a core workout. You know me! I’m all about the core workouts! And this really is mostly core during this workout, adding in cardio, strength, stretching, and an all over body workout. This workout routine really has it all!

Aerojump – Boxers use jumping rope in their workout routines, and know how important it is for agility, quick movements, and their cardio training. A boxer has to go for three minutes in the ring, and it’s all or nothing! Those three minutes are absolutely exhausting, and they know they have to be toned for it! So, aerojump was invented by a boxer, of course! Michael Olajide’ Jr invented this jump rope routine that tones all the muscles in the body as well as provides excellent cardio. The claim is that you can burn 450 calories in just 10 minutes with this routine! Awesome! It’s extremely high intensity, and looks to be a lot of fun. I haven’t tried this one either.

Tae Bo – I have done Tae Bo, and lot’s of it! It’s an older one, but, I don’t think it’s gone out of style yet. This is a fantastic all over body workout! It targets the core as well as increases strength, stamina, speed, and power. Besides, it’s a lot of fun. I love boxing, and though in Tae Bo, you don’t actually hit any bags, it’s still a lot of fun and a great fast paced workout. It will get you in shape very quickly. It’s a combination of Tae Kwondo and boxing put to fun, fast paced music. The class lasts an hour, and it is a high intensity workout. It’s designed for both men and women.

So, I hope this gave you an idea on many of the new classes and some of the old ones that are still out there! Give them all a try, and start moving today!…
