Physical activity can be effective in helping you deal with type 2 diabetes. Studies show that exercise promotes the uptake of glucose more rapidly - in fact, it may have the same beneficial effects as insulin!

Get as active as possible. It will help your health and manage day-to-day physical challenges as well as alleviate some of the symptoms of your health condition.
