Hot Tubs Can Help With Type 2 Diabetes

Did you know that frequent soaking in hot water can actually help lower your blood sugar?

“A small pilot study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that soaking in a hot tub for 30 minutes a day for a three-week period can reduce blood sugar levels by 13 percent.”

This can be very beneficial to people with type 2 diabetes, especially for those who are not able to exercise or have a physical activity limit since soaking in a hot tub mimics the effects of exercise like increased circulation and blood flow. While other factors can help lower and regulate your blood sugar levels, like eat well, soaking in your hot tub is a very low effort option to help you start feeling better.
