Health Tip: Exercising With Diabetes11/01/12
(HealthDay News) -- Becoming active and exercising daily
benefits almost anyone -- even those with a chronic health
condition. But you should always get your doctor's approval.
The American Diabetes Association offers these suggestions for
diabetics who want to start an exercise program:
- Choose favorite activities, making sure they're easy to fit
into your day.
- Set small goals and start gradually. Schedule a number of
10-minute mini-workouts throughout your day, instead of one long
- Find an exercise buddy to help motivate you.
- Set specific, realistic goals. Be sure to write them down.
