Exercising with Type 2 Diabetes

Get Up, Get Out, and Get Moving

When you have type 2 diabetes, being active is another part of living healthy. Almost any type of physical activity helps lower your blood sugar, and there are lots of other benefits too, including:

  • More energy for everyday activities and simply feeling great
  • Stress relief
  • Keeping your joints flexible
  • Lowering your risk for heart disease and stroke

You should always talk to your doctor, or a member of the AHN Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Health, before starting any vigorous physical activity. Adding extra walking to your daily routine is a good start until you can talk to your medical team.
