Weight Loss Advice For Diabetics

Increase Your Exercise & Activity Level

Exercise lowers blood sugar levels, and may reduce your need for diabetes medication. Check with your doctor first. Choose an exercise you enjoy. Set exercise goals, make an exercise plan. Drink about 2 cups of water before you exercise, about every 20 minutes during exercise, and after you finish, even if you don't feel thirsty.


Maintain a Healthy Body Weight

Reducing body fat improves blood sugar control. Weight control decreases your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, etc. If overweight, set realistic weight loss goals (about 10-15 lbs. initially). Allow a reasonable time to reach your goal. Do not lose more than 2 pounds per week.

Maintain a Regular Routine

Eat about the same amount of food each day.

Eat your meals and snacks at about the same times each day.

Do not skip meals or snacks.

Take your medicines at the same times each day.

Exercise at about the same times each day.


Diabetes, Medications, Blood Sugar Levels and Health - Talk to Your Doctor

For anyone with diabetes, it is vital to maintain regular positive contact with your doctor or diabetes teacher. Learn about your condition, especially those aspects that require personal monitoring and treatment. For more information about the health issues involved with diabetes, see your doctor.
