Exercise is really good for people with type 2 diabetes. It helps control blood sugar levels, increases energy levels, improves heart health, and promotes emotional well-being. Barring other medical complications, the majority of people with diabetes can and should exercise for diabetes control and for better overall health and well-being.

The Importance of Exercise for Diabetes

Leading an inactive lifestyle is one of the major risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes, and the high incidence of obesity and overweight among people with type 2 is also highly correlated with inactivity. Starting an exercise for diabetes program can help with weight loss and consequently decrease the insulin resistance of type 2 diabetes. Along with medical nutrition therapy, exercise is one of the first lines of defense in type 2 diabetes control. If you stay fit and active throughout your life, you’ll be able to better control your diabetes and keep your blood glucose level in the correct range. 

Controlling your blood glucose level is essential to preventing other long-term complications, such as nerve pain, kidney disease, and cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that regular activity lowers triglyceride levels and blood pressure, while reducing the risk of these health complications. 

Before you begin exercises for diabetes

Talk to your doctor first before you get started on a reasonable exercise plan. Your doctor will be able to check your heart health, which is particularly important if you already have blocked arteries or high blood pressure. You also need to take into consideration any other diabetes-related complications—retinopathy or neuropathy, for example. As you begin an exercise for diabetes program, your doctor can refer you to a health coach to help you figure out the best exercise program that allows you to get in shape for your fitness level.
If you haven’t exercised in a while, starting a fitness routine can feel daunting. Don’t lose heart! You can do it if you just take small, consistent actions every day. You don’t need to go on an extreme workout regimen, just start with 10-20 minutes of exercise daily and build from there. Its important to set realistic goals. Working with a health and fitness coach (like me!) can help you create a smart plan of action to begin exercising. In our virtual coaching sessions we make a fitness calendar of workouts custom fit to your needs and goals. You will want to start slow and gradually increase the amount and intensity of the activity.
