GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn.-- A small study from the Netherlands suggests exercise may benefit patients with Type II Diabetes in some ways, but not others.
The research included 12 patients who had MRI scans before and after 6-months of moderate-intensity exercise sessions. The exercise appeared to reduce the fat stored around the heart and liver, but did not affect overall heart function.
This morning, Dr. Courtney Baechler from Allina Health stopped by the show to share more insight into this study and what it means for Type II diabetics.
