Exercise program for type 2 diabetes

Exercise program for type 2 diabetes

Exercise assists weight reduction and weight maintenance programs. It also improves body’s sensitivity to insulin.The situation in type 2 diabetes is different from type 1 diabetes because here we are actually prescribing exercise as part of the treatment program.

Many people with type 2 diabetes are overweight and have insulin resistance.The best type of exercise is generally what we call moderate-intensity exercise such as brisk walk, cycling or swimming.

We also recommend a variety of exercises such as resistance training and stretching exercises but the basic recommendation for people with type 2 diabetes is moderate intensity workout that they can sustain over a fairly long period of time.
