Type 2 diabetes is a growing problem not only in the United States, but worldwide. A Spanish study published in Nutrición Hospitalaria searched the literature looking for studies on exercise and diabetes. They found that aerobic exercise, resistance exercise, a combination of the two, and high intensity interval training all resulted in improving glycemic control. While the combination of aerobic and resistance offered the most benefit, they found that having a structured format that included a prescribed frequency, volume and intensity was essential. Consistently swimming with a masters swimming club would offer all of these benefits. Swimming on your own will as well, if you're consistent and give yourself a structured workout.
