When it comes to diabetes management, exercise and proper nutrition is just as important as insulin and other medications. Diabetic patients should exercise for at least thirty minutes a day six days a week to help ensure that they are maintaining the appropriate body weight and fitness level. Even scheduling a daily thirty minute walk can go a long way in improving your fitness.
There’s a persistent myth that diabetics can’t eat certain foods. In reality, they can eat almost everything as part of a planned diet in moderations. If you’re a newly diagnosed diabetic or are unsure how to plan your meals, you can meet with a nutritionist to design a diet that meets the ideal nutritional and health needs of your disease.
