Sheri Colberg, PhD, ADA 2013, Q7: How do exercise guidelines differ for people with type 1 and 2 diabetes?

Feb 19, 2014
 

Dr. Colberg goes over the exercise guidelines for patients with type 1 and 2 diabetes and outlines the differences. She explains that type 1 diabetes patients especially need to be more conscious of hypoglycemia risk during and after aerobic exercise while type 2’s should also be aware of this but are not at as much of a risk. Type 2 diabetes patients on the other hand, if they are increasing their fitness may be able to cut back on some of their medications if their physician approves it.
