Staying Active With Diabetes

People with type 2 diabetes who manage to get in some exercise at work may reduce their risk for heart disease. Researchers writing in 2004 in the journal Circulation found that people with diabetes whose work involved physical activity were less likely to die from heart disease than people whose jobs were sedentary. Those who exercised or were physically active during their non-work hours also cut their death risk over people who got little or no exercise during their leisure hours.
