Hot tubs can offer help for diabetics
The New England Journal of Medicine, in a 1999 article, suggested that hot tubs can help diabetics. The results of a small pilot study indicated that soaking in a hot tub for 30 minutes a day for a three week period can reduce blood sugar levels by 13 per cent.
In the study, as reported by Reuters news service, Dr. Philip Hooper of McKee Medical Centre in Loveland, Colo., experimented with the hot tub therapy in hopes that it would mimic the effects of exercise, which is already known to reduce the need for insulin.
Hooper said, "results suggest that hot tub therapy should be further evaluated as a therapy for patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. It may be especially helpful for patients who are unable to exercise."*
So, whether it is for stress reduction, health or just plain fun, Softubs are just a quick ride away at MSI Tile Bath and Home at Fort Mylner or call 775-1655 or e-mail tommy@tileandbath.com for more information.
*Treatment should not be attempted without supervision as patients may become dizzy in water warmer than 40 C.
