I am a teenager who has type 1 diabetes. What exercises do you recommend?


Exercise is a wonderful treatment for diabetes for most people. Go to the American Diabetes Association website and type in the word exercise in the search bar on the left hand side. There is a wonderful discussion on exercise and diabetes that will be very helpful. Ask your health care provider if there any concerns about you exercising. Everyone is different.


[Editor's comment: I'd also suggest you visit the Diabetes Exercise & Sports Association (DESA) website where you'll find a lot of useful information and resources. SS]
