Weight must be watched while exercising for good results

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease characterised by an absolute or  relative deficiency of insulin resulting in  hyperglycaemia. Individuals with it, are  at risk for developing microvascular complications including retinopathy and neuropathy, if the disease has been   long-standing silent ischemia may develop which is common in people who have had diabetes for a long time.
Several forms of diabetes exist, be divided into the following classification:

  1. Diabetes mellitus type 1 (Insulin – dependent or juvenile on set)

This is an absolute deficiency of insulin due to a marked reduction in insulin secreting beta cells of the pancreas. Consequently, insulin must be supplied by injection. Because of absolute deficiency those with type 1 are prone to developing ketoacidosis.
The cause of type 1 diabetes is thought to involve an auto immune response directed at beta cells that ultimately leads to the destruction in genetically susceptible individuals. The cause of autoimmune response of not being specifically identified, but may include viruses or toxins. This form of diabetes usual occurs before the age of 30 age.
Of the 16 million people who have diabetes mellitus, approximately 10% to 15% have type 1 diabetes.


Type II (None-Insulin -Dependent or Adult onset

Individuals with type II diabetes are considered to have a relative insulin deficiency since they may have reduced, or normal insulin levels but still present with hyperglycaemia.

The increase in blood glucose causes the beta cells of the pancreas to secrete more insulin in an attempt to maintain a normal blood glucose concentration.

Obesity significantly contributes to insulin resistance, and the majority (80%) of the people with type II Diabetes are obese at an onset.


Type II Diabetes is usually genetically influenced, since it occurs in identical twins with almost total coincidence. Most people go undiagnosed for a very long time, because there are no classic symptoms. Type II diabetes affects 85% to 90% of the 16 million who have Diabetes.


This is considered to be one of the cornerstones of diabetes care.

The benefits Include:

  1. Possible improvement in blood glucose control
  2. Improved Insulin sensitivity/Lower mediation requirement
  3. Reduction in body Fat
  4. Cardiovascular benefits
  5. Stress reduction
  6. Prevention of type II Diabetes
