Get Up and Move! Keeping Diabetes Under Control

After sitting all day, participants found out that they were more fatigued

There were those participants who did not care about the promise of improved cardio-metabolic risk, so the study measured how fatigued and energized participants felt before, during and after the day of prolonged sitting.

What was fascinating about this was that participants felt progressively fatigued after sitting throughout the day. Researchers believed that the changes in fatigue during sitting times might be related to decrements in glucose control inconsistency, but there was no clear evidence to help with that conclusion. What research did find out was that glucose and insulin control are more complicated than just getting up and exercising during a day of sitting.
