What is the best exercise for diabetes?

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes consuming foods rich in vitamins and proteins, regularly practicing physical activity and getting enough sleep, lowers the risk of suffering from diseases such as diabetes.

Diabetes is a chronic (long-term) disease that affects the way the body converts food into energy.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is also worth noting that there are three types of it:

Type 1 diabetes: With type 1 diabetes, the body doesn’t make insulin because the immune system attacks and destroys cells in the pancreas. Type 1 diabetes is most commonly diagnosed in children and young adults, although it can appear at any age, regardless of gender. People with type 1 diabetes have to use insulin daily to survive.

Diabetes Type 2: With type 2 diabetes, the body does not make or use insulin properly. Type 2 diabetes can appear at any age, even in childhood without going through type 1. Although this type of diabetes is more common in middle-aged people and the elderly, it is the most common type of diabetes.

However, when a woman has had gestational diabetes, she is more likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life. Sometimes diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy is actually type 2 diabetes.
