I am on a Keto diet which is great for disbetes.

Is there a physical therapy that has a heated pool. To get you started.

I started by walking in my home. Then around the block and, building up. But in the past I've used the pool.

With this many issues caused by arthritis, I wonder if your doctor could prescribe physical therapy to improve your gait or strengthen your knees and ankles.

Walking is a great exercise. Start out small and work your way up.

MayaC,

Before doing anything, I would listen to what your doctor would suggest. Maybe you and your doctor can work out a long range plan for success.

SPARKPEOPLE can offer support, but it's really you and a plan that can make it happen. I just saw my doctor and she made suggestions for me to follow to make sure I did not hurt myself.

Best of luck and let us know how it works out.

1} I have a lot of health problems and 2 of them keep getting in the way. my arthritis and i am diabetic. a lot of veggies have natural sugar and so do fruits. i have to watch how many and how often i eat them. so that route for healthy eating has some road blocks. i am going to talk to my doctor about diabetic meal replacement shakes and see how that goes.
2} my arthritis is in my back, hips and working on my knees. so i cant do most of the exercises that they have. I wrote some down and i want my doctor to look at them before i attempt to do them. i don't need to end of in the hospital. so I'm kinda at a loss at what to do. ANY suggestions would be helpful and appreciated. Thank you in advance.

MayaC
