Experts say people with diabetes should regularly exercise and keep the following aims in mind.
• 150 minutes or more of aerobic exercise each week. Studies indicate that regular aerobic exercise can make insulin work better and lower blood sugar long-term. And it also helps in lessening the chances of having health problems linked to diabetes, like heart disease.Brisk walks, biking, tennis, or anything else that gets your heart rate up is great.
• 2 to 3 sessions of strength training each week. The more muscle mass you have, the better your body can process blood sugar.. Muscle also burns more calories than fat. Lifting weights, sit-ups, pushups, and resistance exercises will help.
If you have diabetes and are not working out, consult your doctor and develop an exercise program.
