Resistance Band Routines

People with diabetes who perform resistance training strengthen their muscles.  This results in a higher metabolism and more calories burnt, improving insulin sensitivity (glycemic control), helping with weight loss, and may reduce the amount of diabetes medications you take, according to Jacqueline Shahar, M.Ed., RCEP, CDE, a certified diabetes educator and manager of exercise physiology in the Joslin Clinic.
