I have Diabetes; is it fine to run?

Diabetes is a condition very common in India and a leading lifestyle disease; it means that your body either doesn’t produce enough insulin or becomes resistant to the effects of insulin. Any kind of cardiovascular exercise such as running along with diet modification is the best medicine to control diabetes. So if you are running with diabetes you are on your way to managing, controlling or even reversing diabetes.

So keep running. If you are new to running though, make sure you monitor your blood sugars regularly with a home kit. By monitoring your blood sugars before and after your runs will help you understand how to push your body and any changes in foods that you may need to implement. Once you manage to avoid fluctuations in the numbers, you won’t need to monitor anymore. But in short, running is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
