Lowering Blood Sugar with Exercise

You can lower blood-sugar through exercise as the body will deplete it's glucose on a cellular level. This causes the cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream. Not an alternative to controlling your diet with balanced nutrition, but a great source of control that is natural when dealing with a minor spike in sugar.

    Another advantage is the increase in absorption through flow on a cellular level. This is due to the pressure of fat on these cells is reduced and allows absorption. I am not sure at what level of obesity, but I believe this is another factor when loosing weight helps control diabetes. I am sure this is not a fix for those slightly overweight and/or have major production issues of insulin. Just something to consider for those looking to exercise and need another reason. :p
