Physical Activity Neurologically Beneficial in Patients with Type I Diabetes

[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 24, 2017 6:08:15 PM / by Dr. Isadora Guggenheim


Physical activity reaps benefits for patients with type 1 diabetes.


If you have type 1 diabetes and are able to get in some extra physical activity it can be really great for your brain health. Especially in middle-aged patients.


Patients with type 1 diabetes see an association between higher physical activity and a larger hippocampi and it appears robust to chronic hyperglycemia and insulin sensitivity, a recent study found. The study was conducted using participants who were middle aged with a mean age of 50 using neuroimaging and self-reported physical activity data.

Get out and get active! Exercise shows benefits to brain health in many different ways, such as depression and Alzheimer's. The hippocampi size and physical activity relationship was only found to be significant in patients who had type 1 diabetes.

I recommend Xymogen's CinnDromX capsules and OptiMetabolix fast-acting shakes to stabilize blood sugar levels. Daily exercise is a must for everyone to stimulate the insulin receptors and improve the intestinal microbiome.

One of the best treatments is ozone chelation. Both therapies have been shown to reverse Type II diabetes. Chelation removes heavy metals that cause cardiovascular disease and free radical activity. Ozone kills pathogens that damage organ systems including the pancreas. The National Institutes of Health TACT Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy showed that 37% of patients with diabetes out of a total of 1700 patients had a 41% reduction in cardiac events, 52% drop in recurrent myocardial infarctions and 43% reduction of deaths. Chelation should become mainstream treatment for Type II diabetes. All Ozone therapies are MD ordered and supervised in NYS.
