"We Have a Breakthrough Lifestyle to Beat Diabetes and Obesity"

Share Article

A Connecticut doctor and diabetes patient, Elsamma Chacko, PhD, MD, has been regulating her blood glucose, without risking hypoglycemia, with timely post-meal walks after major meals. Dr. Chacko says the timeliness of the exercise is critical in lowering insulin resistance.

It's the physiology, stupid.

MyDiabetesLifestyle (MDL) uses physical activity tactically to answer the problem of the post-meal glucose peak. Every major meal is followed by physical activity – a walk will do most of the time – undertaken when the "exercise window" is fully open. [The exercise window is the 1 hour interval during which sufficient meal-derived glucose is available in the blood stream to fuel elective physical activities; as a rule, this obtains between the 30th and the 90th minutes post-meal.] The physiology is compelling, if straightforward. Exercise means work, work requires energy, and the energy comes from the food consumed. Do enough work to use up the bulk of the meal-derived glucose coming into the blood, and little is left to accumulate and eventually get stored, mostly as fat. By systematically blunting the glucose peaks, patients avoid the dreaded consequences of diabetes later in life.

MDL succeeds by empowering diabetes patients to make lifestyle changes that last. The new lifestyles last because they are physiologically sound and are based on reasoned learning and self-training. 
MDL follows the ADA, AACE, and US Surgeon General guidelines. Participants must remain under the direct and active care of their own doctors at all times.
