In the fasting state hepatic glycogenolysis produces most of the glucose and the remaining glucose is produced by gluconeogenesis. The glucose tolerance test consisted of a fasting blood test (I was asked not to eat or drink anything except water from 9pm the evening before).
One tick where I complied against my gut feel (deep down I knew I was fine)- As I sat in the waiting room on the morning I was so nervous I was really ready to do a runner.
Well, I certainly know about the later: Sticky Bean is growing well and strong, as well as being very fidgety and active. Although week 28 is around the time the foetus turns head down, I have so much space in my tummy that this Sticky Bean is still doing somersaults.
I think I can concentrate enough during laps that I don’t let my tummy “dome” (when the bottom layer of tummy muscles come out through the top layer… this pushes the top layer even further apart.)  However, I have been racking my brain how to keep me on track with this regime and realised I have to set myself a target.
Yesterday I swam 500m in 45 minutes comfortably, about 15 years ago I swam 5k across a choppy lake without prior practice and after summer spent lounging around…so I know I have the stamina in me. According to the American Diabetes Association and the American College of Sports Medicine, 58% of American adults are physically active, whereas only 39% of adults with type 2 diabetes are physically active.[1] However, there is no shortage of evidence indicating that diet and exercise are crucial for the management of type 2 diabetes. In addition to weight loss,[1][22][49] improved insulin sensitivity,[1][18][19][20][59] disease management,[19] and overall improved health, there are many reasons from a cellular biology perspective for individuals with type 2 diabetes to incorporate exercise into their daily routine.
Multiple reports have clearly demonstrated the importance of exercise in the prevention or delay of type 2 diabetes. A systematic review of prospective cohort studies by Jeon et al[10] reports that individuals who regularly participated in moderate intensity physical activity reduced risk of type 2 diabetes by 30% in comparison to sedentary individuals. Research has found that a temporary physiological increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) may be essential for a training-induced increase in insulin sensitivity in patients with type 2 diabetes.[17] ROS are beneficial when the increase in ROS is temporary.
13 obese type 2 diabetic subjects and 14 obese control subjects participated in 10 weeks of aerobic training, which consisted of cycling on a stationary bicycle 4-5 times per week, for 20-35 minutes per session, at an average exercise intensity of 65% maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 peak).[18] Subjects were instructed not to make any dietary changes throughout the 10 weeks of training. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is widely considered one of the best biological markers for glucose control.[76],[77] Due to this, many studies reporting the effects of exercise interventions on type 2 diabetes often use HbA1c as either a primary or secondary outcome measure.
Multiple animal studies have also supported the notion that exercise can reduce HbA1c levels. These studies coincide insofar as exercise in acute and chronic exposures promotes increased Glut4 expression in skeletal muscle in diabetic patients. Research shows increased AMPK muscle activity, caused by exercise, leads to increased PGC-1? activity in healthy subjects. Research has demonstrated that AMPK activation is decreased in healthy female subjects compared to healthy males. A study was done to examine the LKB1-AMPK signaling in muscle from obese insulin-resistant Zucker rats and the effects of exercise on signaling. The obese Zucker rats lost 7% of their body weight during the training program and there was a 120% increase in the insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in the obese insulin-resistant rats.
PGC-1? is a transcription co-activator involved in mitochondrial biogenesis, oxidative phosphoralation, increasing Glut4, increasing angiogenesis and muscular fiber type transformation. A study comparing the expression of PGC-1? in 6 males who randomly performed on control resting session and a cycle ergometer exercise session at 80% lactate threshold (LT) and 120% LT. A study investigating the effects of high intensity low volume interval training found that two weeks of interval training of 60 seconds of cycle ergometry at their peak power with rest periods of 75 seconds at 30 watts.

In a study investigating the effect of acute exercise on AMPK signaling in subjects with type 2 diabetes also examined the change in PGC-1? with low (50% VO2max) and moderated (70% VO2 max) single exercise bouts lasting 40 minutes.
In a study investigating the effects of exercise on young type 2 diabetic average age 23 subjects compared to control subjects without type 2 diabetes with similar age, weight, and gender ratio.
It is very easy to let the Littlins and Oh-so-lovely-daddy feel the movements because this Bean is a reliable fidgeter. All sounded very normal to me and to the professional.  She also measured my bump- it was 33 cm (about 5 weeks ahead of the average of 1cm per week). The only thing I could think of was to do a sponsored swim- set a date, a length and name a cause. This page will explore general exercise recommendations, response to exercise in individuals with type 2 diabetes, and the effects of exercise from a cellular biology perspective in order to help identify appropriate exercise recommendations for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
Managing type 2 diabetes requires a combination of diet, exercise, and medication (when prescribed). Additionally, a review of large diabetes prevention trials by Sanz et al[7] reported that interventions focused on increasing exercise along with diet can cut the incidence of type 2 diabetes in half for adults with impaired glucose tolerance. In Finland, a large diabetes prevention trial found that people who greatly increased leisure-time physical activity (i.e.
Moderate physical activity increases both nitric oxide (NO) and ROS and decreases oxidative stress. It is important to recognize that in humans, HbA1c levels reflect an average of plasma glucose concentrations from the previous 3-4 months.[78] Therefore, changes in HbA1c levels occur over long periods of time, and are not likely to be affected by single bouts of exercise. 75%-85% VO2max) produce greater reductions in HbA1c, as opposed to lower intensity activities. This has been found across multiple trials using both different animal models of type 2 diabetes, as well as different exercise interventions. However, the degree of this expression can be disputed, as some studies show far greater changes than others (369% versus 36%).
TNF?, a proinflammatory cytokine involved with inflammation, was studied to investigate the effects of moderate exercise and changes to inflammatory markers in diabetic mice who performed 3 weeks of 30 minutes of running 6 days a week at approximately 60% VO2 max. The exercise session at 120%LT lasted 60 minutes and the exercise session at 80% lasted the amount of time necessary to have equal energy expenditure compared to the 120%LT test. Over the two week training period, the subjects increased the amount of intervals from 8 to 12 per session.
The study had 12 obese subjects with type 2 diabetes (average age 53), 8 obese subjects without diabetes, and 8 non obese subjects without type 2 diabetes.
Research has found that high intensity training leads to increased levels of PGC-1?, which results in an increase in the following:type 1 muscle fibers, mitochondrial biogenesis, fat oxidative capacity, GLUT4, and glycogen.
I then had an hour wait (which wasn’t too bad as I had some lovely company of other mums and mums-to-be) till the next blood test- this gave the “sugar rush” levels of blood sugar and then they tapped me for another small file of blood a futher hour later. My tummy shifts are a great source of amusement and distraction during bedtime stories especially.
However that’s not a surprise- my physiotherapist (who I’m seeing for the SPD), said that my muscles have split considerably. The plan is to exercise… but there’s not much I can do with the SPD.  Aquanatal classes are too far away (in Bicester) and I’ve had to give up on those.

This review also showed that the reduction in incidence from such interventions carried over for years after cessation of supervised activity.[7] Furthermore, a systematic review and meta-analysis by Gillies et al[8] reported that lifestyle interventions focusing on achieving weight loss as well as increasing physical activity are just as effective as pharmacotherapy for reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes in individuals with impaired glucose tolerance. However, strenuous exercise increases NO, markedly increases ROS, and increases oxidative stress.
Overall, it appears that chronic adherence to the recommendations set forth by ACSM and the ADA (i.e. Further research is needed to examine the various interactions between fitness and Glut4 expression and the effects of the various exercise interventions available.
At the end of 3 weeks the diabetic mice that exercised had a 6% improvement in TNF-?, 34% increase in inflammatory markers involved with insulin signaling Interleukin (IL) -1?, 86% increase in IL-g. Results of the study found that exercise at 80%LT showed an insignificant change in PGC-1? gene expression, where as the 120% LT exercise session had a significant increase in PGC-1? gene expression. The chronic group exercise for 70 minutes (5 minute warm up, 60 minutes exercise, 5 min cool down) 4 times a week at 70% VO2 max for 12 weeks.
However, more high-quality research is required to further clarify the specific exercise parameters (i.e. The acute exercise group performed the same exercise for 7 consecutive days.[73] Both groups had muscle biopsies performed at pre-test and after their final exercise session. Results for the chronic exercising group found the young type 2 diabetic group had no change in VO2, insulin sensitivity, insignificant drop in plasma free fatty acid for the chronic group where as the non diabetic group had a 20% increase in VO2, and a significant drop in plasma free fatty acids.[73] The acute exercise study also found a 4x increase in PGC-1? in the control group compared to no increase in PGC-1? in the young type 2 diabetic group. However, I now have a secret weapon to conquer my fear of salad. I love red onions, and I love garlic.
So the two together created a delicious flavor explosion in my mouth that I just have to share..
Determined to overcome my salad challenged attitude, I began looking at various recipes on the web for chopped salads, and using several as a guide (to which I added my own twist of course) I came up with this great tasting blend of fresh corn, black beans, olives, peppers and avocado. But rest assured that this delicious looking AND TASTING vegan hamburger recipe will have you happy and feeling great about your cruelty free choice. Instead, you can join the party with something just as tasty, happy in your stance of cruelty free food choices. And though most vegan cheeses aren’t QUITE the same as cow or goat milk based cheeses, there are many commercial brands and some home made versions which definitely fill the void. The sender was raving about the fabulousness of this mac and cheese, which I have to admit got my attention. The part I didn’t like was burning my oven for two hours to cook four patties of wheat meat.
We were surprised that such a modestly priced mix passed our taste test for vegans and omnis with flying color and a five-star rating.
