Exercise is absolutely necessary for diabetics to help them manage blood sugar levels. Even engaging in light activities can improve their overall health.
- People with diabetes should engage in at least 3 minutes of light activity for every 30 minutes of prolonged sitting.
- Specific types of exercise are emphasized — balance training, aerobic exercise (walking, biking), flexibility and resistance training (weights).
