Health Tip: Exercise Advice for Those With Diabetes

(HealthDay News) -- Physical activity can help people with diabetes lose weight and better control their blood sugar, but there's a right time and place.

The U.S. National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse explains these "do's" and "don'ts" for diabetics who exercise:

  • Do work with your health care team to find the best time of day for you to exercise.

  • Do consider factors such as your medications, meal plan and daily schedule when figuring out the best time to exercise.

  • Do exercise if you're a type 2 diabetic and your health care team recommends it.

  • Don't exercise when you have ketones in your urine or blood.
