Living with diabetes demands taking action to take care of various aspects of your life, constantly and having clear goals, including those related to physical activity and exercise.
We know with scientific evidence that physical activity and exercise have a direct impact on glucose levels, generally in the reduction, although in certain conditions also on the rise; but also in more indirect ways, such as increasing insulin sensitivity (your body’s response to the action of insulin), increasing muscle mass, which is the tissue with the highest metabolic efficiency, improving mood, helps reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood, among many other effects that ultimately impact diabetes control.
That said, in managing diabetes it is necessary to perform physical activity and exercise on a regular basis or as part of your daily routine, and also keep a timely record of said activity, based on the fact that diabetes is a data disease , data in relation to physical activity are also necessary and important.
