Exercise and Fitness Tips for Diabetes

By Tommy Blue

Diabetic patients are advised by doctors to regularly undergo exercise and physical fitness sessions to maintain their health. The bodies of patients diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes lose the ability to produce insulin in enough quantity to consume or burn sugar in normal diet to translate into energy, while those diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes even have to put up with dangerously low levels of insulin in the body. This is where the importance of regular exercise becomes so evident since exercise allows diabetics to effectively burn sugar that enters their body with diet, significantly reducing their sugar levels. At the same time studies suggest that the threat of cardiovascular disease is almost eliminated in diabetics due to exercise.

Regular exercise is the best way to go about for all diabetes patients, so any diabetic reading this article should seriously consider starting regular workout and recommend the same to fellow diabetics. However, starting your campaign on a mild note is a good thing to do, so you need to undertake basic exercises such as walking in the beginning and only move on to more advanced exercises once your body is ready for it. Doctors also recommend exercises such as running, bicycling and swimming as beginner level exercises that can be safely adopted. Irrespective of the type of exercise you want to infuse in your daily routine, you have to adhere to the one primary rule of exercising, which is to keep your workout short in the first few days and gradually extend its duration.

Bodies of patients of diabetes are somewhat fragile and cannot endure all kinds of exercises so it is of paramount importance that you consult a physiotherapist before pursuing an exercise in case you are a diabetic. In particular, diabetics confront a lot of problems while running mainly because of the state of their feet. Any exercise requiring you to lift heavy objects can take a toll on your blood pressure, so avoid doing such exercises. You must possess an ID card or band that is worn by diabetics. If so, then you must wear it at all times while you are away from home doing workout in a gym so that others can accordingly help you out in case you should need medical aid. You should also make it a part of your routine to check your carbohydrate intake and check up with your medication and insulin intake before getting started with a workout session.

People suffering from diabetes must closely scrutinize their endurance and state of health before they decide to switch gears and adopt more hectic exercises such as swimming and cardio strength exercises. Regular workout in the gym can be of great help in allowing your body to cope up with whatever type of exercise you wish to undertake. The best thing is to look to go through sessions ranging from 30 to 40 minutes on a daily basis, or a few times each week, if your body cannot withstand daily exercise. You need to remind yourself of the fact that you must undergo stretching before and after an exercising session to ensure that you can avoid any calamitous injury during exercising. Getting yourself a pair of comfy socks and joggers can also do a world of good to preserve your feet during workout.

Exercise will surely bring changes in your body, particularly your blood sugar level. But that is not the only change, and those changes will not always be pleasant. Your condition could even worsen at times, especially if you exert too much. If you start feeling unwell, and when your body starts telling you that there is something wrong, then it is better to stop the exercise. If your blood sugar level exceeds 300 mg/dl, then you should stop the exercise. You should also stop working out if your blood sugar level lowers than 100 mg/dl during the session.

There are various other more obvious symptoms as well which alert patients to stop exercising including feeling of pain, having problems in breathing and numbness in legs and abdomen. In case your urine tests show positive results for ketones, then this is a fair indication that you should give up doing exercise for a few days. You should also get awareness about the causes and symptoms of Hypoglycemia and consult your physician about its seriousness.
