    Physical activity is safe - and essential - for people with diabetes. Talk to your health care team about ways to safely increase your daily physical activity.

    Being physically active can help people with diabetes improve their blood glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure and weight. It also helps improve strength, flexibility and balance.

    Start by setting small goals until you reach at least 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week. Brisk walking is a good way to move more.
