If you have diabetes, you know that you have to take charge of your own health. Although it isn’t always easy, only you have the power to control what you eat, how much you exercise, and how often you test your blood glucose levels.

But you aren’t alone. Your doctor plays an important role by working with you to develop an effective treatment plan. Your plan may need to change from time to time, so it’s essential that your doctor has the information needed to make decisions that are right for you.  

On top of tracking your diet and blood sugar, regular exercise is a key part of managing your diabetes. And while any exercise is better than none, certain activities have specific benefits for people with diabetes.
