Staying Active

couple walking

Physical activity stimulates insulin and can be used as a method to balance blood glucose levels and decrease the risk of diabetes complications. In fact, research shows that physical activity may even help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.1

Eating typically raises your blood glucose level, while diabetes medications and physical activity lower it. During physical activity, your muscles use the glucose in your blood for energy. Insulin circulating the body lets glucose into the cells.

Before any physical activity, make sure you talk to your healthcare professional, balance your food, and understand your insulin needs. Eating 1 to 2 hours before activity can help keep your blood glucose level from going too low. You may need extra food to maintain the increased level of glucose your body needs for energy when you are physically active. Bring a snack with you any time you may be active over long periods.
