Type 2 Diabetes is a
chronic disease that occurs either when the
pancreas does not produce enough insulin or
when the body is resistant to the insulin it
produces. The major contributing factors to
type 2 diabetes are insulin resistance, as
well as genetics and lifestyle (excess body
weight, physical inactivity, unhealthy
diet). Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood
sugar, is a common effect of uncontrolled
diabetes and over time leads to serious
damage to many of the body's systems,
especially the cardiovascular system.
90-95% of people with
diabetes have type 2 diabetes. While this
was once seen solely in adults, the
obesity-epidemic has caused a spike in cases
of type 2 diabetes among children. The
number of people with diabetes has nearly
quadrupled worldwide from 108 million in
1980 to over 425 million today. Diabetes is
the direct and indirect cause of 3.7 million
is the A1C test for diabetes?
is a blood test, conducted in a lab, that
shows average blood sugar levels over the
previous 3 months prior to the blood draw.
The normal range for people who don’t have
diabetes on an A1C is between 4 percent and
5.7 percent. An A1C of 5.7 to 6.4 percent
indicates pre-diabetes. If A1C is 6.5
percent or higher it indicates diabetes. The
higher the A1C number, the higher the chance
of having long-term health problems caused
by consistently high blood sugar levels.
Leveraging traditional forms of exercise,
A1C and Cardiac Risk Profile values
effectively change and improve when someone
exercises for 40-60 minutes per day, 3 to 4
times per week.
Diabetes and bioDensity(tm)
has a proven, positive effect on reducing
glucose in the blood along with a multitude of
other health benefits. Engaging in exercise has
an insulin like consequence, regardless of how
insulin resistant the person is, because the
effect is from inside-out of the muscle cells.
Yet, one of the biggest challenges in healthcare
is to get people to exercise 40-60 minutes per
day, 3 to 4 times per week. bioDensity has the
power to change all that, making it a great fit
for those who are at risk of/being treated for
Type 2 Diabetes.
A multi-center study has demonstrated
significant changes in A1C levels can be obtained when subjects exercised
just one day a week for 5 – 10 minutes with bioDensity within 12 to 24
weeks. Read about it, and other studies, here:
