EXERCISE TIPS FOR DIABETICS

Regular exercise can lower blood glucose and possibly reduce the amount of medication you need to treat diabetes, or even eliminate the need for medication. Here are a few useful exercise tips:

Get your doctor’s approval before starting an exercise program
Start slowly with a low-impact exercise such as walking, swimming or jogging
Warm up for 5 minutes before starting to exercise and cool down for 5 minutes after
Avoid doing activity in extremely hot or cold temperatures. Choose indoor options when the weather is extreme
Drink plenty of water before, during, and after activity to stay hydrated
Always carry a source of carbohydratewith you so you’ll be ready to treat low blood glucose
Activities should be energizing but not overly difficult
Wear athletic shoes that are in good shape and are the right type for your activity
Try to exercise at the same time every day for the same duration. This will help control your blood sugar
Exercise at least three times a week for about 30 to 45 minutes
If you plan to exercise more than an hour after eating, it’s a good idea to have a snack.
If you use insulin, exercise after eating, not before
Test your blood sugar before, during and after exercising
Do not exercise when your blood sugar is more than 240
Carefully inspect your feet before and after activity for blisters, redness or other signs of irritation
Stop doing an activity if you feel any pain, shortness of breath or light-headedness.
Talk to your doctor about any unusual symptoms that you experience.

Increased thirst, increased hunger, urinary frequency more than 2 times in the night are a few main symptom of diabetes. It is good that you have become diet cautious and started doing. Fasting/ pps were done how many times 6 months back. Hba1c is a very important 3 monthly sugar test to check out the sugar control level. Please go for a proper screening for fbs, pps, rft, lipid profile, hba1c and serum electrolytes without delay and let the results be evaluated properly for establishing diabetes and its complications and if necessary, proper treatment of diabetes.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Patient on treatment for hypothyroidism, if on adequate dosage of levothyroxine, then TSH level should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are in check including weakness and even drowsiness. As regards repeated urination, consult the gynecologist and follow her/his advise. Also check her blood glucose level. Thanks.
