I've been training now for 20+ years, since I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at 50.
I take it seriously.
Diabetes doesn't just kill you; it does it cruelly - slowly destroying your circulation. Amputations, kidney failure, blindness and dementia result from your capillaries slowly clagging up with excess sugar.
That's why I take exercise seriously as a means of managing my diabetes.
Since I was diagnosed at 50 with Type 2 diabetes I've been learning how to do bone-building body-shaping training for people our age. You can too. It's your choice. Walter
