How Much Should I Plan My Diabetes Exercise?

Q:
I am ready to do some exercise for lowering my blood sugar. This time I will persist for at least three months. How much should I plan it?

A:
Exercise in diabetes should be a long-term thing. So don’t bite off more than you can chew. Once a week for 30 minutes is a good starting point and then twice and more.

TIME: 5 min
