Weak muscles may increase diabetes risk in women Study

A study from Singapore shows that women with weaker upper and lower body muscles were more than two-fold likely to have diabetes as compared to those with normal strength. The study found that upper body strength, as measured by hand grip strength, was independently linked to 1.59-fold higher cases of diabetes.

The link between diabetes and muscle mass has been highlighted in a recent study from Singapore, which found that women with weaker upper and lower body muscles were over two times more likely to have diabetes than those with normal strength. The study indicates that a lack of muscle mass increases insulin resistance, leading to diabetes, and diabetes also decreases muscle mass and hand grip strength. The findings suggest that resistance training should be included in workout schedules to improve muscle strength and mass, which can positively impact blood glucose control in those with diabetes and improve bone health in all individuals. Resistance training exercises can include using dumbbells, resistance bands, and calisthenics like sit-ups, squats, and push-ups. Additionally, increasing protein intake through dietary changes can help to build better muscles, including the consumption of meats, poultry, fish, soya, beans, legumes, dal, and dairy products.
