An exercise safety checklist for people with diabetes

This Week's Tip

An exercise safety checklist for people with diabetes
There's no doubt about it: Consistent, moderate exercise is one of the most important and effective weapons you can use to help manage your diabetes and your weight. To keep yourself safe, follow this checklist:
  • Talk to your doctor about the right exercises for you, and begin gradually with a few minutes of exercise at a time when you're just starting out.
  • Always check your blood sugar level before and after exercising.
  • Always wear diabetes identification. People with diabetes should wear a comfortable necklace or bracelet that states they have diabetes (in case of emergency).
  • Check your feet for blisters or sores before and after exercising.
  • Wear proper shoes and socks.
  • Warm up before each exercise session, and cool down and stretch afterwards. This will aid in your comfort and also decrease your risk of injury or complications.
  • Drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after exercising. Dehydration can affect your blood glucose levels.
  • Bring a fast-acting carbohydrate snack in case you experience symptoms of hypoglycemia. Juice, hard candy and glucose tablets are a few examples.
  • Report any recurring, exercise-related pain in your legs or extremities to your doctor right away.
