Lowering physical activity impairs glycemic control in healthy volunteers

Exercise increases your insulin sensitivity (good). Inactivity decreases insulin sensitivity (bad). And everyday that you don’t move the decrease in insulin sensitivity (risk of diabetes) is greater.

Decreased insulin sensitivity (insulin resistance) is found in pre-diabetes and diabetes. Diabetes can damage you nerves, eyes, kidneys, and cardiovascular system. Do you want to sit around and see if all that happens to you?
