This is How Exercise Can Cure Type 2 Diabetes

That’s a great question and the short answer is yes.

Today I’m going to answer a really important question. So if you’re talking about type 2 diabetes which manifest itself in insulin resistance, then the short answer is yes. Exercise can cure type 2 diabetes where insulin resistance is the cause of the type 2 diabetes.

Here is why:

Exercise stimulates depletion of glycogen in your muscles and your liver cells, as well as simultaneously building up your muscle cells.

What that effect has is that it creates more space for the excess sugar and the excess insulin to store glucose properly. That’s why many people who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes their first thing that their doctor says is, I want you to start exercising more because the exercise will have the effect of lowering and ultimately storing sugar in the proper way.

Now if you have type 1 diabetes, or if you have type 2 diabetes that is not caused by insulin resistance maybe your type 2 diabetes is caused by another defect that has to do with your insulin production, or your the way that your liver functions; then exercise cannot cure diabetes.

That doesn’t mean that exercise isn’t important.

Exercise is universally recognized as a part of the diabetes treatment triangle. The diabetes treatment triangle is medication, nutrition, and exercise. You really can’t have one without the other.

So short answer is, if you have a specific type of type 2 diabetes which is basically insulin resistance, then yes exercise can cure type 2 diabetes.

If you don’t, or if you have one of the other forms of diabetes like type 1 diabetes, then exercise cannot cure diabetes.
