Diabetes & exercise
Everyone should do some form of physical exercise if they are to keep healthy. A body in good general condition can withstand hardships better. However, exercise must be enjoyable and should not be something one is forced into. Some like sports while others prefer to sit quietly with books, the television or a computer. We must adjust the insulin treatment to the individual, not the other way around.
