New Mobile App Tells the Right Type of Exercise According to Real-Time Glucose Levels
Exercise is an important part of a person’s diabetes management. However, not every type of exercise is good for every person with the condition. The type of exercise depends on the person’s real-time glucose levels.
The GlucoseZone App, launched on this year’s World Diabetes Day, was designed to provide a solution for blood glucose improvement by telling the right type of exercise based on our real-time glucose levels.
So, before we even start to exercise, we should first check our blood sugar levels. Charlie O’Connell, the C.E.O. of the app which has type 1, says depending on our glucose levels, we may or may not be safe to exercise, as well as perform a certain exercise.
Therefore, GlucoseZone App provides specific exercise solutions based on our condition so that we can reduce and control it.
The goal of this app is to give people a chance to use their own bodies to control their condition.
Exercise with such condition is challenging. For instance, if we have neuropathy in our feet, going for a walk is not a realistic exercise for us. Instead, we should do chair exercises, and the app offers an entire chair-based workout program.
Moreover, if the glucose level is 200, we should do much different exercise if our level was 100.
So, for high glucose levels, we need to avoid high-intensity exercise as it can cause our glucose levels to go even higher. This is a mistake a lot of people make.
They think they should exercise hard when their levels of blood glucose are high to bring their blood glucose levels back under control. But, they should do the opposite.
On the other hand, if our blood sugar levels are low, we need to avoid aerobic, or long duration, low-intensity exercise.
So, this is exactly what the GlucoseZone App will tell us . By giving us the right type of exercise, it gives us a solution to take control over our condition and life in a healthy and natural way.
People can download it from the App Store or Google Play Store, and try it out for free.
