Exercise is one of the cornerstones of diabetes management along with diet and medication. Exercise can acutely improve insulin sensitivity for between 2 and 72 hours. Moderate aerobic exercise acutely improves insulin sensitivity and lowers blood glucose while a single bout of intense exercise can transiently increase blood glucose. Combined aerobic and resistance exercise may have more benefits than each exercise alone, although this needs to be confirmed in future studies. Aerobic and resistance training can both improve insulin sensitivity and blood glucose, while, resistance exercise increases muscle mass and may be particularly beneficial in the elderly.
Key Words: Diabetes, Exercise, Glucose metabolism
