In my health coaching practice I use a Three Leged Stool approach to diabetes management. Simply put, there are three major areas to consider to balance blood glucose levels and manage diabetes: Exercise, Diet and Medication.

This week’s emphasis is on exercise. While food raises blood sugar, and medications ultimately lower blood sugar, exercise too burns blood sugar therby removing it from the blood stram. This is the specific benefit to diabetics, however there are several benefits of exercise for everyone including the heart, lungs, brain, bones, muscles and more.

My friend Jamie Brooks, a personal trainer, and I are working on an exercise video that will offer some exercises everyone can do at home as well as teach the correct way to use equipment at the gym.

Enjoy a sneak peak . . .
