Regular physical activity has long been found to associate to the prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and other chronic diseases, but regular walking contribution of health benefits of the younger elderly have not been explored.
According to Catholic University of Daegu, implementing a regular walking and exercise program in older adult reduce incidence of type II diabetes complications, through expressions of physical strength, and energy consumption (behavioral aspects), and decreased FBG, HbA1c, and TG levels (biochemical aspects(1).
In the review of Three databases, searched up to August 2014.of Eighteen studies involving 20 RCTs (866 participants) among type 2 diabetes patients, regular walking not only supported the decrease of HbA1c and BMI but also lowered the DBP among type 2 diabetes patients(2).
Dr. Fritz T and colleagues at the Center of Family Medicine, Karolinska Institutet said, "increase of regular physical activity equivalent to 45 min of walking 3 days/week may suffice to improve systolic and diastolic blood pressure, lipid metabolism and BMI "(3); improvement of plasma protein concentrations that promote blood hyperviscosity(4) and on cardiovascular risk factors and body composition in normoglycemic in patients with type 2 diabetes(5)
In fact, regular exercise not only reduces complications of types 2 diabetes in older adult(1)(2)(3) but
also prevents an early onset of the disease, due to its effect on reduced prevalence of hyperglycaemia and improved glycaemic control(9). According to Dr. Thyfault JP and Dr. Booth FW, physical inactivity (bed rest, increased sitting time, and reduced daily ambulatory activity), increases risk of metabolic dysfunctions in contribution to in the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes(6).
Physical inactivity, in sedentary behaviors, especially sitting may have a major impact on mortality, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome risk factors, and obesity as a result of inactivity initiated unique cellular processes involved metabolically unfit(7) of which may contribute to early onset diabetes.
Dr. Thyfault JP and Dr. Krogh-Madsen R.at the University of Missouri said, ' The transition from physical active to inactivity may result in insulin sensitivity, central adiposity and risk of chronic disease(8).
