Dr. Patel for Parade: What Exercise is Best for Type 2 Diabetes

Posted on August 29, 2023

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects millions of people worldwide, characterized by high blood sugar levels resulting from insulin resistance or insufficient insulin production. While medical treatments and lifestyle changes, including diet, play a crucial role in managing the condition, exercise is also a vital component in the fight against Type 2 diabetes. 

In a Parade article, Texas Diabetes endocrinologist Dr. Ishita Prakash Patel explains the exercise-diabetes connection and which workout routines are recommended for people with Type 2 diabetes. 

Dr. Patel recommends following the American Diabetes Association’s guideline of 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per week. “Ideally, it is good to have a consistent regimen of at least 30 minutes of exercise a day,” Dr. Patel says.

Always remember to work closely with your healthcare team to create an exercise plan that suits your individual needs and goals.
