#Flash: Increasing Standing Time Lowers Blood Sugar Levels
This study tested the insulin sensitivity of 64 middle-aged inactive adults with metabolic syndrome. The findings revealed that standing is linked to improved insulin sensitivity regardless of the amount of daily physical activity or sitting time, fitness level, or obesity. In terms of insulin sensitivity, higher body fat percentage is more relevant than physical activity, fitness, or the amount of time spent sitting. These findings support the idea of replacing a part of daily sitting time with standing, especially if physical activity recommendations are not met.
