Managing Diabetes

Physical Activity & Fitness and Accusplit Pedometer Combo

To help motivate you to speak to your doctor about starting a fitness program and track your performance, Joslin is offering a special price when you buy both Staying Healthy with Diabetes -- Physical Activity & Fitness and an ACCUSPLIT Pedometer. Physical activity is an important part of managing your diabetes and maintaining a healthy weight. This offer can help lead you to the healthy lifestyle goal you are striving for!

Physical activity is good for everyone, but it is especially important for people with diabetes because it improves the body's ability to handle glucose.

Staying Healthy with Diabetes - Physical Activity & Fitness explains how physical activity can lower your blood glucose by improving your body's ability to use both glucose and insulin.  It also provides information about weight loss, managing highs and lows during physical activity, exercising when you have other physical limitations and how to avoid the road blocks to fitness.
