Exercise and lifestyle choices
Diabetes doesn't stop people from leading the life wanted. It doesn't nessicarily mean other serious health problems in the future.
With careful management you can control the condition, rather than the condition controlling you. This will allow activity and living life to the fullest!
Why excercise is needed
When active, cells become sensitive to insulin so it can work more efficiently. Your cells also remove glucose from the blood when exercising. So this can help lower blood sugar.
