Exercise plays a key role in diabetes management. If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you will likely work with a local endocrinologist and family physician. You may also work with a local personal trainer, kinesiologist and registered dietitian. A local personal trainer is a health and wellness provider who is trained in helping people manage health conditions and improve their quality of life through exercise. Some of the potential benefits of working with a local personal trainer if you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes include lowering blood glucose levels, lowering blood pressure, sodium reduction, losing weight or maintaining a healthy weight, understanding the glycemic index, preventing diabetes-related complications such as diabetic neuropathy, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, kidney problems and heart disease. Your local personal trainer can help you do exercises like psoas strength training, hamstring exercises, stomach exercises and cardio exercises. If you want to learn more about diabetic exercise and how a local personal trainer can help you manage type 1 or type 2 diabetes, talk to your local family physician, endocrinologist or registered dietitian.
