Exercise Tips for Diabetics

Did you know that about seven percent of the population has been diagnosed with one of the types of diabetes?

Contrary to popular belief, having diabetes does not mean that you can not exercise. In fact staying active is a great way to prevent and control diabetes. It just means that you need to approach exercise with extra care, so here are some exercise tips for diabetics:

  • Wear well-fitted shoes
  • Dress in light clothing
  • Exercise after meals, if possible, to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia
  • Warm-up (stretch) prior to exercise
  • Remember to drink regularly during exercise
  • Take soft candy
  • Build exercise tolerance
  • Do not perform intense exercise without discussion with your personal physician
