Importance of Exercise in Diabetes

  • Regular exercises will help your body respond to insulin and can lower blood glucose and possibly, reduce the amount of medication you need.
  • Exercises improve your circulation, especially in your arms and legs where diabetic patients have a problem.Exercises can help reduce stress which can increase your glucose level.
  • Exercises combined with a meal plan can control type II diabetes without the need for medication.
  • In older people who have diabetes, there is a decrease in insulin sensitivity that comes with ageing and is partly due to lack of physical activity. So, regular exercises benefit them for years to come.

Tips for exercising safely:


  • If you have Psychopathy,(problem in eye) avoid heavy weight lifting. They can damage the fragile blood vessels in the eye.
  • If you have peripheral homeopathy,(numbness in foot)choose a good, soft footwear.
  • If you have a history of high cholesterol, and/or triglycerides, or heart attacks, have a cardiovascular examination before starting an exercise program.
  • If you have any Kenton (a kind of waste products )in urine, or you are experiencing any pain, tingling or numbness in your legs, do not exercise.
  • If your medication is peaking, it’s better not to exercise.
