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.
