Exercise Helps Prevent Diabetes

Here's another reason to stick to your New Year's resolution to get more exercise. A study from Duke University shows regular exercise helps the body process blood sugar more efficiently, reducing the risk of Diabetes.

Duke researchers followed a small group of people who exercised for nine months. Blood tests showed a significant improvement in the their ability to process carbohydrates, and the effects were still there a month after the group stopped exercising.

Researchers say that suggest long term exercise is an effective way to control blood sugar levels in people at high risk for Diabetes. The study is in the Journal of Clinical Exercise Physiology.
