Single workout can improve metabolism for up to 2 days

Lounging around all weekend may weigh heavy on the minds of the health conscious.

A new study from UT Southwestern Medical Center shows neurons in mice that influence metabolism are active for up to two days after a single workout.

The study found that a single bout of exercise can boost the activity of POMC neurons and inhibit the counterpart NPY/AgRP neuron for up to two days.

Those changes last longer with more training.

The results also provide another avenue to research potential treatments to improve glucose metabolism in patients with conditions such as diabetes.

More than 30 million Americans have diabetes, accounting for nearly 10 percent of the population.

Another 84 million have prediabetes, which can lead to diabetes within five years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
