What if your doc gave you a diagnosis of pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes and instead of drugs

he/she takes you to a room where there is a brand new bicycle and a physical therapist to fit you to the bike.

That's what Bill Hart-Davidson thinks - He is not a doctor but is a researcher. This is his story on his diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes:
"Rx: Bike"
"I am not a medical doctor. But if you have been diagnosed with Pre-Diabetes, or if your Doctor has said you have Type II but that you don't yet have serious complications such as vascular damage (e.g. kidney or eye problems)…then I have a prescription for you: ride a bike. Seriously. It just may be the most effective medical treatment you can seek out. It can completely reverse your symptoms. You can be drug free if you are bike-ful. And I'm about to tell you why. But I have to tell you some things about diabetes first, and some things about me."

"Diabetes and Cycling: Can You Really Bike Your Way To Wellness?"
"This guest post is from Jon Stanton of Lansing, Mich. After being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, Stanton lost 230 pounds by adopting a healthy diet and walking every day.

Got diabetes? Grab a bike. In fact, according to some recent analysis of research from a fellow weight-loss success story, cycling may be more beneficial to your A1C (if you are a diabetic) than some of the more popular pills."

Ha Louis. You are ahead of the game. You have been telling us for a long time the benefits of your bike and cycling circuit. Would doing a bike in a gym be as effective?
