Exercise a Good Protector Against Heart Problems in People With Type 1

4906

Australian researchers say type 1s who regularly exercise are protecting themselves against cardiovascular disease “through the preservation of vascular compliance.”

A study population of healthy volunteers (176) and type 1s (105) between the ages of 17 and 70 years were recruited.

The researchers found that three or more episodes of vigorous activity per week were associated with greater cardiovascular heart health.
