Expounding the Role of Exercise in the Management of Type II Diabetes
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
The association between the urbanization of cultures and the concomitant decreased levels of exercise and physical activity and the prevalence of type II diabetes has been established. The incidence of type II diabetes in Singapore is about six percent in the adult population but the disease is unequally distributed among the ethnic cultures. Type II diabetes is also linked with an increase in age, body weight and body fat, but a regimen of regular aerobic-type or light intensity weight-training has 'insulin-like' effect and is beneficial in the amelioration and management of type II diabetes. However, the 'insulin-like' are quickly lost within 14 days after the cessation of the exercise training or physical activity.
