Diabetes and Exercise

Exercise can help control your blood sugar levels when you are diabetic. In addition, if you are overweight and diabetic, exercise will help you lose weight. However, as a diabetic, there are extra considerations and precautions that you need to take before you begin an exercise program. Nevertheless, exercise is an important tool in your effort to manage your diabetes.

If your blood glucose level is too low or high, it is better to wait to exercise. You can do more harm than good if you do not. It is particularly dangerous if your blood sugar is low when you begin to exercise. Physical exertion can cause your blood sugar to drop even further which can trigger an emergency situation.
