Weight training linked to reduced diabetes risk

Do you offer weight-training classes for employees? You may want to consider it. Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health and University of Southern Denmark found that men who weight train regularly may be able to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes up to 34 percent. Type 2 diabetes is on the rise; worldwide, some 346 million people have the disease.

The study, published in Archives of Internal Medicine, is said to be the first to examine the link between weight training and type 2 diabetes. Because weight training appears to yield significant benefits independent of aerobic exercise, it may be a valuable alternative for people who have difficulty with typical “cardio” exercises.

The research found that even a modest amount of weight training may help. And those who combined weight training with aerobic exercise like brisk walking or running may be able to reduce their risk up to 59 percent.
