Default How often should a diabetic exercise? What kinds of exercise would be appropriate? – 12-25-2008, 01:45 AM

I’m not sure how much exercise would also be considered too much. I’ve heard and read some recommend an exercise of 3 times a week. Would exercising daily be too much? I think other people leading active lifestyles have no problem with daily physical activity. Is it possible for a diabetic to still build up their muscles? Or would their condition make it a little more difficult for them?

Any kind of exercise is beneficial, and if they are seeing a doctor should not be a problem unless their disease is very advanced.Lifting weights builds muscle, and muscle responds much better to insulin than fat does. One can about’cure’early type 2 diabetes often by building enough muscle and exercising.Walking is great for the heart and lungs. It also brings down high blood sugar. Ten minutes of walking can make a noticable difference on your meter. If you do 30 minutes, it can keep your numbers lower for 24 hours after.If your blood sugar gets totally out of control, like 250, exercise isn’t good until it is down a bit.

All kinds of exercise is in order. I prefer Nordic Walking. That’s walking with ski poles or just plain sticks. This way my upper body also benefits from walking.Yes you can build muscle, and the more the better. I will help with G/L .

i was just diagnosed in feb and my doctor told me that i should do 30 minutes a day of exercise like walking or something like that. its hard for me cause i work in buisy machine shop 10 hours a day and when i get home im soo tired i dont feel like doing much. im pretty active as it is. i turn on the tv as background noise and im always cleaning or cooking or doing yard work when im not working. i can get away with eating pretty much what i want in the mornings cause i burn it off fast. my blood sugar is always 110 or below if that tells you anything. im on medication and the doctor says im close to getting off and its only been 3 months. the doctor also said if i want to cheat a little and eat things that may raise my blood sugar at night that i should do exercise after dinner. eat my meal and then go for a walk or something to keep it down.

You can do the same exercises as anyone else does.
