Yoga Lowers Blood Sugar…

Yoga has been found to lower fasting blood sugar in people with diabetes, as well as levels of hemoglobin A1c, a measure of longer-term control of blood sugar. The effect may in part be due to lowering cortisol and adrenaline levels. Higher blood sugar levels increase the risk of such common diabetic complications as heart attacks, kidney failure, and blindness. Yoga may also help lower high blood sugar levels via weight loss and appears to improve sensitivity to the effects of insulin. (source: Timothy McCall, M.D.)
