Quote of the Week

 

Preventative elements of exercise are well known to us.  On a very basic level, activity burns calories, so the more we do, the more fat we are burning up.  If we keep food intake constant, our weight will tend to drop.  That, in turn, makes our cells more sensitive to insulin.  This lowers blood sugar and may forestall the development of diabetes.  In patients who already suffer with diabetes, exercise may lower medication needs, thus avoiding some cost and side effects of that medication.
