With this type of diabetes, people often can control their condition with regular exercise and a good diet. Unfortunately, many diabetics are physically unable to endure rigorous activity and maintain a steady weight. These people have nowhere else to turn besides hot tubs. In a recent study conducted by Dr. Philip Hooper at the McKee Medical Center in Colorado, eight people with Type 2 Diabetes were placed in hot tubs for 30 minutes a day, for three consecutive weeks. The results indicated that these patients reported a 13% reduction in blood sugar levels, improved sleep and an increase in their overall sense of well being.
