take of glucose. "The problem is that diabetic patients usually start out with poor exercise potential. So it would be dangerous to take obese, sedentary people and make them suddenly start doing aerobic exercises." Therefore, a diabetic patient needs to be thoroughly evaluated medically to rule out coronary artery disease and other health problems that preclude activity.

"We want to get high blood sugar, blood pressure and elevated levels of 'bad' cholesterol under control before we start patients on an exercise program," Schickler says. "The next step is to get the patient to move more, particularly to walk more. I recommend patients who have the disease under control aim for aerobic and weight training for 30 minutes three times a week. I stress positive changes can occur with aerobic exercise. Sometimes, though, blood sugar may drop after exercise and you may even develop low blood sugar called hypoglycemia. The doctor then needs to tell you how to adjust your blood glucose before and after exercising."
