This meta-analysis found that regular exercise increases insulin sensitivity. Diabetes Metab J. 2016 Aug 2.

Comment: By increasing insulin sensitivity, the need for insulin decreases and theoretically more patients with Type II diabetes could avoid insulin and be maintained on oral antiglycemics, simply by engaging in regular exercise.
