Diabetes and Fitness
Diabetes and fitness do not contradict one another.
If you are diabetic it doesn't mean you should not exercise, on the contrary.
Physical activity for you, as a diabetic person, is very necessary and has a high importance.
It stimulates your insulin sensitivity and reduces blood glucose levels.
The result could be fewer medications. Less pills and less insulin!
Exercise burns calories, reduces blood cholesterol levels and blood fats.
The result could be losing weight and reducing risk for heart problems.
Exercise reduces blood pressure and lower stress.
Exercise will strengthen your heart, bones and muscles, and will help your joints remain flexible.
Surely I'm not coming now to turn your life upside down.
It's obvious that every major change should take weeks and months.
You should start it slowly and in moderation.
But the most important step is to take a decision
. A decision to get up from your armchair and to tell yourself that from today you're changing from passive to active.
I'm sure you have thousands of reasons why not to do so.
