Why it's important for diabetics to exercise

Why it's important for diabetics to exercise

Dan Steffes |

Exercise is important for everyone, including people with diabetes. For people with diabetes, exercise has several benefits:

  1. Helps control blood sugar levels: Exercise helps your body use insulin more efficiently, which can help lower blood sugar levels. This is especially important for people with type 2 diabetes who may be insulin resistant.

  2. Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease: People with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Exercise can help reduce this risk by improving cardiovascular health.

  3. Helps with weight management: Maintaining a healthy weight is important for people with diabetes, as being overweight or obese can make it harder to control blood sugar levels. Exercise can help with weight management by burning calories and building muscle.

  4. Improves overall health: Exercise has many other health benefits, such as improving mood, reducing stress, and boosting energy levels.

It's important to note that people with diabetes should talk to their doctor before starting an exercise program. Depending on their overall health and other factors, their doctor may recommend certain types of exercise or precautions to take while exercising.
