Diabetes Self-Management Blog

This week, we’d like to direct your attention to this story at www.medlineplus.gov at, a Web site run by the National Institutes of Health, about a workstation that combines a treadmill with a computer. This special desk, which was developed at the Mayo Clinic, helped obese people burn extra calories compared to sitting at a regular desk in a recent study.

You can also learn more about the study and see a picture of the workstation in this article at the Canadian news Web site cbc.ca.
