Diabetes and Exercise
Exercise is often advised as the only form of therapy in diabetes when the sugar level is between below 200 to 250 mg/dl, provided there are no complications like:
- Damage to the blood vessels of the eye or retinopathy
- Damage to the nerves and circulation to extremities or, neuropathy
- Problems with kidneys or nephropathy
- Heart related problems such as - angina
Physical activity of any type (e.g. walking, jogging, swimming, badminton, tennis or similar activity) should be incorporated into the daily routine. Choosing an activity that is enjoyable and is fun helps to sustain it over time. A variety of exercises must be selected and doing it with a partner or friend is helpful in avoiding boredom.
