Textbook Problem

Questions 11–14 refer to this scenario and appropriate components of the nutritional management of type 2 diabetes.

Scenario: Lois was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes two months before she planned to become pregnant. To get her blood glucose under control before pregnancy, Lois worked with a dietitian-nutritionist who specializes in diabetes, and together they developed a plan to reduce Lois’s blood glucose levels.

13.    Lois plans to perform aerobic exercise 25 minutes daily because it will help improve insulin resistance, lower blood glucose levels, and improve her blood lipid levels.

____ True    ____ False

Summary Introduction

To examine: Whether the statement “Lois plans to perform aerobic exercise 25 minutes daily because it will help improve insulin resistance, lower blood glucose levels, and improve her blood lipid levels” is true or false.

Introduction: Glucose in blood stream serves as a basic fuel for energy production. The complex carbohydrate we consume in form of food is broken down into glucose, which directly gets assimilated into the blood stream. The latter is followed by increased glucose level in response to which the beta cells of pancreas produce insulin, whose primary work is to supply glucose to all cells and lowers the blood glucose level. Inactivity or absence of insulin increases the glucose levels in blood, giving rise to type-2-diabetes.

Explanation

Person L was diagnosed with type-2-diabetes two months before she planned to conceive. She and her dietitian-nutritionist worked together to chalk out plans to reduce her blood glucose level.

Exercise is a good approach to increase insulin affectability. It has shown a great effect on reducing blood sugar levels. A study revealed that hour of cycling on a machine at moderate speed expands insulin affectability for 48 hours...
