Diabetes is a serious disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces

There are three common types of diabetes, we work with people with Type 2

  • Type 2: This is the most common form. This is when your pancreas doesn't make any or enough insulin, or your body can't use the insulin it does make very well. The glucose can't get into your cells, so it stays in the blood.

Diabetes and Physical Activity


  • Physical activity (exercise) is very good for all people and especially those with diabetes

  • Getting started may not be easy, but is possible once you take those first few steps

  • You may need to see your health care team and have a medical check before increasing your level of physical activity

  • Moderate exercise done most days of the week is best

  • Aerobic exercise (exercise that uses up oxygen) is best for improving your health

  • You don’t have to do a huge amount of exercise to improve your health (the equivalent of 20-30 minutes walk each day)
