Diabetes and Physical Activity collects current review articles on the relationship between exercise and diabetes, and discusses in detail the physiologic, molecular and genetic mechanisms involved in this interaction.
The goal of the book, as stated in the preface, is to provide current evidence-based information regarding the effects of physical activity/inactivity and nutrition on insulin resistance and diabetes, and to determine the underlying mechanisms to explain the observed effects.
The book has much to offer and is highly recommended to research scientists, students and clinicians, including physicians, dieticians, exercise physiologists, biokineticists, physiotherapists, nurses and diabetes educators.
The book is composed of 14 review articles each written by different experts and includes 15 figures and 8 tables. The following topics are addressed in the review articles: 1- "The relationship between Exercise, Nutrition and Type 2 Diabetes", 2- "Sedentary Behavior as a Mediator of Type 2 Diabetes", 3- "Increasing Preva-lence of Type 2 Diabetes in Sub-Saharan Africa: Not Only a Case of Inadequate Physical Activity", 4- "Exer-cise Interventions to Prevent and Manage Type 2 Diabe-tes: Physiological Mechanisms", 5- "Relationships be-tween Exercise, Mitochondrial Biogenesis and Type 2 Diabetes", 6- "Interaction between Lipid Availability, Endurance Exercise and Insulin Sensitivity", 7- "Mecha-nisms in Exercise-Induced Increase in Glucose Disposal in Skeletal Muscle", 8- "The effect of Exercise on Obesity, Body Fat Distribution and Risk for Type 2 Diabetes", 9- "Gene-Physical Activity Interactions and Their Impact on Diabetes", 10- "Physical Activity and Gestational Diabetes Mellitus", 11- "Physical Activity in Children: Prevention of Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes", 12- "Diabe-tes and Exercise in the Elderly", 13- "Public health Rec-ommendations for Physical Activity in the Prevention of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus", and 14- "Exercise for People with Type 1 Diabetes".
