Yoga and Diabetes Self-Management
Research Studies have shown that people diagnosed with either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes can benefit from practicing Yoga. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the body no longer produces insulin. Normally, doctors prescribe insulin injections as a treatment for Type 1 Diabetes. On the other hand, Type 2 Diabetes is often called a lifestyle disease. In this case, the body produces insulin, but the body’s cells become insulin resistant. As a result, the hormone is processed inefficiently.
Type 1 Diabetes is not preventable. However, Type 2 Diabetes is often deemed to be preventable with lifestyle changes. Both conditions can cause stress and exhaustion from trying to manage the disease on a daily basis.
