Regular exercise helps control your blood glucose levels

Exercise is essential for a healthy life; the benefits of exercise are as follows:
1. Lowers blood glucose levels, improves your HbA1c value
2. Lowers blood pressure
3. Reduces weight 
4. Lowers blood lipid 
5. Improves insulin sensitivity, reducing the likelihood of insulin resistance
6. Strengthens muscles and bones
7. Relieves anxiety and stress
8. Improves mood

The American Diabetes Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercises per week for people with diabetes. Moderate intensity activity means that you can talk, but not sing during the activity.
It is recommended to discuss your exercise plan with your doctor first. You should first confirm your physical health status and discuss appropriate ways and times to exercise before starting your exercise plan.
