Wellness Wednesday: Staying Active In The Summer With Diabetes

Since summer is soon approaching, let’s share some tips about exercising with diabetes!

☀️Why Should Physical Activity Be Included In Diabetes Management?

Being active allows one to maintain a healthy weight and lower cholesterol, as well as lowering stress, improving memory, and reducing the risk of heart disease and nerve damage. When you are active, your body is more sensitive to insulin, which aids in managing diabetes.

☀️How much physical activity is recommended?

According to the CDC, the goal is to get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity physical activity.

☀️Physical Activity Tips For People With Diabetes This Summer

- Whenever you start a new physical activity program, get medical clearance first.

- Before, during, and after physical activity, blood sugar levels should be checked.

- Keep active during the cooler hours of the morning and evening to escape the heat.

- You could experience low blood sugar from activities like hiking, biking, and swimming if you take insulin or certain diabetes medications. Therefore, monitor your levels during this time.

- For hypoglycemia, keep quick-acting carbohydrates like sugared candy or glucose tablets.

- Keep healthy snacks on hand during physical activity, such as trail mix, nuts, granola or fruit.

- Stay hydrated with water or electrolyte drinks.

- Depending on your physical activity, wear proper footwear. Avoid walking barefoot to limit the risk of injuries to your feet.

❓ What are some summer physical activity tips you would like to share that have helped you?
