How Tai chi help diabetes?

Tai chi helps to control blood sugar and insulin levels in people with type 2 diabetes, according to a recent study conducted at Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital, Taiwan. It also helped reduce depression and anxiety in this group of patients.

The study followed 30 diabetic patients aged 20–69 years who practiced Tai chi twice per week for 6 months as compared to another 30 control patients who did not do Tai chi. All the participants were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes between one month and 8 years prior to the study and received treatment from the hospital’s endocrinology department.
