Abstract

Regular exercise provides substantial health benefits to people with type 2 diabetes, including better control of their condition, an improved cardiovascular risk profile, weight loss, and an improved quality of life (Sigal et al, 2006). Although physical activity should be a major strategy for any diabetes care team, there is limited information available on how best to encourage people with type 2 diabetes to take more physical activity. This article provides guidance on ways to promote physical activity in people with type 2 diabetes.
