Strength Exercises – Diabetes Series

By Global Health Media Project:

Strength exercises are especially important for people with diabetes. This type of exercise builds muscle. It can improve your blood sugar levels, and reduce your need for medication.
It also helps you lose weight and keep it off. This video describes simple quick exercises that you can do to improve your strength and balance.

This video is one of over 30 videos in our series on diabetes prevention and care. The videos are targeted for three audiences: health care workers – to help guide providers in developing countries in good diabetes care; people with diabetes – to improve their knowledge and home care; and the general public – to increase their understanding of diabetes, with the aim of greater awareness of the risks and symptoms, and ways to prevent type 2 diabetes.
