Sedentary Behaviour and Exercise on Insulin Sensitivity

Study Description

Investigation of the Effects of Sedentary Behaviour and Moderate Exercise on Glucose Tolerance and Insulin Sensitivity

Individuals with pre-diabetes or diabetes would benefit from low impact methods that would improve their insulin sensitivity and aid in maintaining glucose homeostasis. Physical activity helps the body decrease its insulin resistance and burn excess sugar. Many diabetics also suffer from obesity and specific forms or durations of physical exercise may not be viable options for these individuals. Determining whether short bursts of moderate exercise improve blood glucose levels in healthy humans may identify a further method for diabetics to improve their glucose homeostasis. The aim of this study is to determine the most effective moderate exercise that can be completed in 3 minutes and its effectiveness on improving glucose handling, in response to a single day of standardized high-fat and high-carbohydrate feeding in comparison to periods of prolonged sitting.
