if they lose weight and exercise
to get fit, according to a study released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as mentioned in Diabetes Health.

Now, a diabetes study from the University of Copenhagen showed that interval walking, a combination of high intensity and low intensity walking, is significantly better than simply continuous walking at a steady pace to treat diabetes.

How you exercise is just as important as the exercise itself.
The right combination of resistance training and aerobic workouts can unlock two key benefits for those living with diabetes: Lower blood sugar
levels and fewer meds.
