Lecture at the BASEM Spring Conference 2018 in Doncaster on 'Hormones. Health and Human Performance

Objectives

To understand the role of Physical Activity in the reluctant exerciser with Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes, like sedentariness is unacceptably high in the general population. Physical inactivity is associated with dysglycaemia, insulin resistance and progression to type 2 diabetes with an earlier onset of co-morbidities. However, experimental evidence demonstrates improvements in glycaemia, cardiovascular risk, physical capacity and mental health outcomes with positive lifestyle behaviour. Notwithstanding the power of physical activity to improve the health of a person at risk of, or already with type 2 diabetes how do we encourage physical activity in a person reluctant to exercise? This talk will explore where we can do more to encourage physical activity, overcoming barriers and extending positive lifestyle change into meaningful messages that improve patient adherence to exercise. We will reflect on available resources that offer support for people wishing to improve their health through physical activity.
