Making physical activity a routine part of clinical care
Being physically active is good for diabetes. This includes traditional exercise like going swimming or playing football, but also small things like moving more when you’re travelling to work or using the stairs instead of the lift. It all makes a difference.
“You don’t have to do traditional exercise, simply moving more is good for your health and your diabetes. That might be walking to the shops, using the stairs or even standing more. It’s amazing how quickly small changes can add up and lead to a physically active life.”
