Kids! Exercise to beat diabetes risk in later years
Obsession with muscles leads to depression
The Journal of Physiology, exercise early in life reverses the negative effect of low insulin sensitivity in adulthood for children and therefore, can counteract the risk of diabetes.
Insulin is a hormone that controls blood sugar levels and people with low insulin sensitivity do not respond to insulin as well as normal, which results in blood sugars levels increasing. This can lead to type 2 diabetes.
Children of fathers with a high- fat diet or who are obese are more likely to have low insulin sensitivity.
The study conducted by Victoria University involved breeding obese male rats with healthy female rats. Their offspring underwent exercise training for only four weeks after weaning and then were assessed as adults in terms of responsiveness to glucose.
The offspring of obese fathers had reduced whole body and skeletal muscle insulin sensitivity Washington, Nov. 10: Young men, who are overly preoccupied with building muscles, have a significantly higher risk of depression and weekend binge drinking.
A new study stated that they also have four times the probability of using legal and illegal supplements and anabolic steroids.
The study also shows that 10 per cent of men have what is thought of as the more common type of body image disorder.
and reduced insulin secretion. The early exercise in these offspring prevented in adulthood the negative effects caused by a high- fat diet in their fathers.
It is important to note that early exercise did not have any positive effects on their pancreas, according to the study.
This was very interesting as the group had previously shown that rats born small for gestational age, like humans, had pancreas problems as adults. — ANI
