Exercise and Diabetes

Why Exercise?

- May improve blood sugar control
- Increase circulation of blood to all parts of the body
- Helps in weight control
- May lower blood pressure
- Relieve Stress

Exercise lowers the blood sugar levels. In order to prevent your sugar dropping too low, you will need to reduce the amount of insulin taken, or increase the amount of carbohydrates taken to offset the exercise being done.

Always carry quick acting sugar, like lifesavers or sugar cubes, so if your sugar does go low, you can quickly bring it back to a safe level.

Please discuss with your dietitian how exercise will work with your food intake, and how to modify the intake to ensure your sugars do not drop too low.
