Exercise and Diabetes
Not a fan of regular exercise? Consider becoming one. Exercise is critical to help you manage your diabetes.
Exercise improves insulin’s ability to lower high blood sugar and keep it stable — a key requirement for living a healthier life with diabetes and preventing its complications. Regular workouts also help you improve your cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, strengthen your heart, and maintain or lose weight. Add to that the fact that exercise lowers stress, increases energy, and improves mood and you’ve got an incredibly powerful tool for managing diabetes on several fronts.
