Diabetes

ACHIEVE YOUR REHABILITATION AND FITNESS GOALS IN OUR SUPERVISED, MEDICALLY BASED EXERCISE PROGRAMS

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease characterised by deficiency of insulin leading to hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar levels). Insulin insufficiency reduces body’s ability to use glucose as fuel and transport to muscles, therefore accumulates in blood. Research has shown that even light to moderate resistance training can have a large impact upon blood glucose control for type 2 diabetics, as it promotes  uptake of this glucose from the blood to be utilised by exercising muscles, and has a similar physiological effect upon the body as insulin. These benefits not only last for the duration of exercise, but for several hours afterwards. Therefore, regular physical activity is encouraged to help diabetics reduce their blood glucose levels with less reliance upon medication.

Our Accredited Exercise Physiologists have designed a program to help diabetics increase their physical activity levels and promote adherence to exercise in a supportive environment. The aim of this program is to provide a structured and safe atmosphere for clients to become accustomed to resistance exercise. We will strive to develop cardio-respiratory fitness as well as facilitate strength gains, which will greatly assist with blood glucose control.
