There are two main types of diabetes, Type 1 diabetes where body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells which produce insulin and Type 2 diabetes where the body does not produce enough insulin or the body’s cells don’t react to insulin. The United Kingdom has more and more individuals at risk from Type 2 diabetes, with 4.6 million people living with diabetes within the UK. Within the region, many deaths have been associated with diabetes, specifically due to the lack of preventive and curative measures for this diabetes.
As a result of excessive blood sugar level, an adverse impact can occur upon the vital organs of the body including the cardiovascular system, kidneys, eyesight and vascular system of a peripheral nature. However, many individuals have blood sugar levels higher than the normal range however these are not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes, this is known as pre- diabetes. If an individual’s blood sugar levels are higher than the normal range, it is very likely for it to progress towards diabetes, hence the need to counter it with early diagnosis and prompt preventive measures. In addition to this, the risk of stroke and / or heart attack can also be associated with diabetes due to the lack of proper nutrition and exercise, which is required to control it.
Therefore, our experienced trainers carry out bespoke processes with the aim of diabetes management; ensuing blood sugar levels are controlled through weight loss (a reduction within the level of obesity) along with keeping proper nutritional dietary requirements in mind. The process can also aid in improving the sensitivity towards insulin. This process can further allow for the level of blood pressure to be maintained, which may save the heart and lungs from any further damage. Also, throughout the process physicians are consulted if and when required, to further ensure an optimum recovery process.
