January 25, 2008, Newsletter Issue #138: The Benefits of Exercise

Tip of the Week

Why should you bother to exercise when you have diabetes? Being diabetic comes with a myriad of serious potential complications, including, but not limited to:

* kidney disease
* anemia
* heart problems
* vision loss
* nerve damage

Studies have proven the benefits of exercise in improving circulation, lowering blood glucose, and in reducing blood pressure and cholesterol. Exercise lowers your risk for heart attack and stroke, decreases stress, promotes joint function and flexibility, and it even helps insulin work better, in addition to strengthening bones and muscles!

Since obesity increases blood sugar and further increases your risk for heart disease and stroke, the best exercise programs for diabetics include a combination of dietary changes and physical activity, to stimulate your metabolism and increase your energy.
