Type 2 Diabetes and Weight


If you have type 2 diabetes being overweight can create even more problems for you. Exercise is an important part of your diabetes care. You need to make exercise a part of your daily routine. You do not need to get in the habit of making an excuse not to exercise every day. Regular exercise helps prevent health problems, helps keep your weight down, and also helps insulin work better.

Find activities that you enjoy doing so it will be easier for you to stick to your program. If you have not exercised for a while start with something slow and easy. You can do things like walk your dog, work in your yard or garden, join a walking group.

You can also do things throughout the day that can help you. For instance park your car as far away from the building your are entering as possible. Leave your desk when your can and take short walks during the day. If you have a lot of phone calls to make keep some hand weights close and lift them while you talk. Instead of running your car through a car wash wash it yourself. Be creative with ways you can be active.
