Diabetes and the bellicon Rebounder

Keep your Health in Balance with bellicon

rebounding can help with diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes, a condition characterized by high blood sugar levels, is the fastest growing disease in the United States. Although the exact cause of diabetes is still unknown, genetic factors, weight issues and physical inactivity have been shown to contribute to the onset and progression of the disease.

A bellicon workout provides the kind of aerobic exercise that helps to prevent diabetes or, for those already suffering from it, helps to reduce its symptoms. If you have diabetes, exercising on the bellicon assists in regulating your insulin levels by lowering blood sugar and increasing your cells’ ability to absorb glucose, both during and after your workout…with or without insulin. This effect lasts up to 24 hours, so a gentle, effective and fun daily workout on the bellicon will help to keep your blood sugar levels down naturally.

Diabetes is Affecting More and More Americans

It’s estimated that 23.6 million people in the United States have diabetes, which is about 7.8% of the U.S. population. Even more disturbing is the dramatic growth of type 2 diabetes among children and young adults. Once called “adult onset diabetes,” type 2 diabetes increased by 30% within the youth population between 2001 and 2009 alone.

Not only is diabetes widespread, but there are millions more with undiagnosed diabetes as well as “pre-diabetes.” According to the American Diabetes Association, "Pre-diabetes is a condition that occurs when a person's blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes,” and may effect as many as 54 million additional people in the United States.

As troubling as these statistics are, the good news is that you can do a lot to prevent diabetes or control its symptoms. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight — around 7 percent of initial body weight — and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.” The right kind of exercise and a proper diet can make an enormous difference in your health, vitality, and quality of life.

Low-Impact - Big Benefits

A moderate-intensity, low-impact bellicon workout is the safest, most beneficial type of cardiovascular exercise for just about everyone, but for people with diabetes it has even greater benefits. If exercise becomes too intense, it’s recognized by our bodies as stress, and hormones instruct our bodies to increase blood sugar levels to provide added fuel for muscles, which is something that diabetics need to avoid.

People with diabetes are also prone to vascular damage in their eyes (retinopathy) and nerve damage in their feet (peripheral neuropathy), which can be brought on by high-impact exercise. A gentle, yet highly effective rebounding session on the bellicon will help you to keep healthy, fit and injury-free.

Of course, the bellicon boosts your health in other ways as well, like lowering your risk of heart disease and stroke, burning calories for weight control, and improving balance, energy levels, and sleep habits…all of which are particular concerns for people with diabetes. The bellicon may also be the world’s best exercise for preventing or stopping the progression of osteoporosis, another potential diabetes side-effect.

Talk To Your Doctor

If you have health issues that affect your ability to exercise, be sure to talk to your physician or healthcare provider before beginning any new exercise program. This is particularly important for people with diabetes, since the disease, its side-effects and its treatment can vary so much from person to person.

In general, if you have diabetes, remember to monitor your blood sugar levels before, during and after exercise to make sure they don’t get too high or too low.

  • by RW in ClevelandKeeps the weight off!

    I have had the rebounder for 2 years now and love it as much now as when I got it. It has helped see me through a weight loss of 120 pounds in the last year. I have not had to replace the bungee cords yet so I can attest to their build quality. I had used spring based rebounders prior to the Bellicon and never really liked...

  • by TedQuiet and fun - can't wait to get on it

    It's fun and it feels really good; like bouncing on a cloud. I get great aerobic exercise and it inspires me to do push-ups and sit-ups when I'm done rebounding. I've already lost 2 pounds and I have more energy during the day. I'm a happy customer!
