Being Active

Exercise is important to your health and blood sugar control. Even a small increase in physical activity may help to make a big difference in your diabetes. Your activity plan and your meal plan work together.

Being active can help to:

  • Lower your blood sugar
  • Reduce your need for many diabetes medicines or help your body use insulin better
  • Improve your heart health
  • Manage your weight

If that isn’t enough, being active may also:

  • Strengthen your bones and muscles
  • Give you energy
  • Relieve stress
  • Improve how you look and feel

Talk to your doctor about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity in your diabetes treatment plan.
