Diabetes: ‘Exercise snacking’ before meals can help improve blood sugar control – study

The research found: “Exercise snacking attenuated mean three hours postprandial glucose concentration following breakfast but not lunch, and was more effective than traditional continuous exercise following dinner.

“Exercise snacking also reduced 24 hour mean glucose concentration by 0.7 ± 0.6 millimoles per litre (mmol/l) and this reduction persisted for the subsequent 24 hours.”

The study concludes: “Dosing exercise as brief, intense ‘exercise snacks’ before main meals is a time-efficient and effective approach to improve glycaemic control in individuals with insulin resistance.”

Diabetes.co.uk says that “normal” blood sugar levels are between 4.0 to 5.4 millimoles per litre (mmol/L) when fasting, and up to 7.8 mmol/L two hours after eating.
