    Thank you so much for your excellent comment. A regular exercise program which includes both cardiovascular exercises such as jogging, cycling, fast walking etc. helps to control diabetes as well as to improve general health. Make sure your health care provider approves of these types of changes and if you are on medication to treat your blood sugar make sure you discuss the full effect of exercise on blood sugar. Some people require a snack or insulin adjustment when they embark on an exercise program. Stress is another factor that may adversely affect your sugars. If you go to the GYM and then sit around all day, you may not get the results you are looking for. Try to stay active during the day as well. Thanks again, Sybil and Tova.MEDICAL ADVICE DISCLAIMER: The information included on this site is for educational purposes only.
