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
- 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.
