Transcript

The first thing you need to know is that being sedentary is almost never safe for a person with diabetes. One of the things that I recommend to my patients is to start low, go slow, and titrate up. That means getting at least 3,000 steps in a day. If you can make that, then the next goal is to get 10,000 steps in a day. Also very important is weightlifting because that helps generate more muscle tissue, which improves your metabolism. Finally, I really like yoga because this is a great stress reducer and stress can definitely affect your blood sugar.
