Diabetes Fitness & Exercise

For diabetics especially type 2, physical activity is one of the most important treatment plans apart from a healthy diet and maintaining blood sugar levels with medication when necessary.


Staying fit and active can help you better control your diabetes and keep sugar levels in control.
Controlling blood sugar levels is also essential to prevent long term complications such as kidney issues and nerve pain.


Exercise has many benefits, but its biggest advantage is that it makes it easier to manage blood sugar levels.
In case of type 2 diabetics, they have too much sugar( glucose) in their bloodstream – this can be either due to insulin resistance or failure to use the insulin properly by the body.


In either condition, exercise can help reduce the blood sugar levels. Our muscles are equipped to use glucose without insulin suck up when we exercise. SImply meaning, that it is not important if your body has enough insulin or not, when you indulge in exercise your muscles get the glucose they need and turn blood glucose levels down as well.
If you are resistant to insulin, exercise can actually make insulin sensitivity more effective.


Exercising can also help type 2 diabetics in avoiding long term complications such as a heart disease.
People with diabetes are more susceptible to developing blocked arteries. With working out you can keep heart healthy and strong while maintaining good cholesterol levels. This in turn can help avoid arteriosclerosis.


The traditional benefits of exercise include:


● Lowering blood pressure
● Better weight management
● Increase in good cholesterol
● Leaner and stronger muscles
● Stronger bones
● More energy
● Improved mood
● Better sleep patterns
● Better stress management


Before jumping on the exercise wagon it important to talk to your doctor or medical advisor to assess your age and condition. You might need to asses any diabetes related complications like retinopathy or neuropathy. You doctor may even refer you to a physiologist to help you workout.


Make realistic goals and start slowly and steadily when you start an exercise programme.
Make smaller changes in your routine and keep adding activities. Make sure you know what works for you and your lifestyle. Another important tip is to stay hydrated and keep your glucometer and emergency contacts handy.
