For people with diabetes, exercise and physical activity can help manage the disease and help you stay healthy longer. Walking and other forms of daily exercise can help improve glucose levels in older people with diabetes. Set a goal to be more active most days of the week, and create a plan for being physically active that fits into your life and that you can follow. Your healthcare team can help.
A few easy steps to be more active:
Stretch during TV commercial breaks.
Walk around when you talk on the phone.
Take more steps by parking farther away from stores, movie theaters, or your office.
