Eye-Opening Connection Between Pre-Diabetes and TV. Did you know that each hour of time you spend sitting and watching TV increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes? Studies show that neuropathy starts in pre-diabetes, but there's real hope at this stage.
According to an article by National Health Science - United Kingdom, each hour you spend sitting while watching TV, increase your risk for developing diabetes by 2.1% PER hour.
When your risk of diabetes goes up, so do your risk for developing painful “peripheral neuropathy” symptoms such as: burning, tingling, numbness, muscle weakness and muscle cramps.
The study was conducted by researchers from:
- The University of Pittsburgh
- George Washington University
- Pennington Biomedical Research Center
- And several other US universities
All 3,000 participants had these issues:
- High blood sugar
- Insulin resistance
Are You 1 of 86 Million U.S. Adults With Pre-Diabetes?
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 3 adults have pre-diabetes.
Are you aware that pre-diabetes puts you at risk for developing neuropathic pain or neuropathy even in you don’t develop diabetes?
The link between watching a lot of TV… having a very sedentary lifestyle is summed up well by Dr. Rob Singleton.
Dr. Rob Singleton, professor of neurology at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, found that pre-diabetics can ease neuropathic pain with exercise. He is a strong proponent of lifestyle interventions that reduce risk factors.
That’s why we incorporate simple yet powerful activities into the Neuropathy Recovery Program.
The little things you do add up…even when you’re watching TV! It's about finding middle ground, and adding little moves to your life...not giving up your favorite things!
Nerve environment restoration through activity and exercise is a key component to recovery from painful neuropathy.
Pre-Diabetic Neuropathy and Diabetic Neuropathy Improves With Movement
According to findings of DiabetesJournals.org “diet and exercise counseling for impaired glucose tolerance results in “cutaneous reinnervation” and improved pain.”
What does “reinnervation” mean?
“Reinnervation” is restoration of nerve function after it has been previously lost.
In other words, even after nerve damage, nerves will try to repair themselves by sprouting new nerve cells IF you create a healthy nerve recovery environment.
The hope for neuropathy recovery becomes reality when you take simple strategic steps back to health. It comes down to following a tried and true recipe to get fast and fantastic results.
I’m not asking you to give up the “couch.” Goodness knows it’s a comforting place to be, but get into healthy action, so you can prevent or relieve neuropathy pain and improve your overall health.
Why wait until your pre-diabetes or diabetic neuropathy advances?
Grab valuable tools you can use TODAY. You can do it. Just 10 more minutes of activity today and build on it.
