By Nicole Nichols, Health Educator and Certified Personal Trainer
This workout plan was designed specifically to help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar and lose weight safely.
Regular exercise has long been proven to help people with diabetes reduce their risk of future complications and manage their blood sugar levels. A recent study published in the Nov. 24, 2010 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that when people with type 2 diabetes did aerobic (cardio) exercise some days and resistance training on others, they had lower blood sugar levels after nine months than people who did either type of exercise alone. That's news to researchers who long believed that aerobic exercise alone was the best way to manage blood sugar. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_artic
