Couch Potatoes At Risk for Diabetes
The results of a study published in the February issue of Diabetes Care suggest that people who get very little daily activity are at a higher risk for diabetes.
Morrato's team found that just 39 percent of adults with diabetes were physically active, compared to 58 percent of those without diabetes ... Among those who did not have the disease but had risk factors for it, the researchers found that the more the risk factors, the less likely the people were to be active.
