How Can Exercise Help Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by doing just two sessions of high-intensity training (HIT) a week, new research published in the journal Biology has shown. In the paper, the authors from Abertay University state that high-intensity training (HIT) not only reduces the risk of disease, but is also just as effective at doing so as the exercise guidelines currently recommended by the UK Government.

These state that five, 30-minute sessions of exercise should be carried out each week – something that very few people manage to achieve.The most common reason cited for this is lack of time, and the research team behind this latest study believe that HIT is the perfect way for people who are time-poor to improve their health.┬áThis short, but high-intensity, regime was enough to significantly improve cardiovascular health and insulin sensitivity – the body
