AADE releases exercise tip sheet to share with patients

The American Association of Diabetes Educators has released an exercise tip sheet to help diabetes educators work with clients on fitness and managing their health.

According to information on the AADE website, the “Don’t Let Exercise Stop You in Your Tracks” tip sheet includes eight recommendations, abbreviated below, to help people become active without dreading it:

  • Find your motivation by determining what you want to achieve. Is it playing with a grandchild, losing weight or reducing pain? Whatever the goal, the recommendation is for patients to write it down and after a few weeks of activity, check to see what strides they’ve made toward meeting the goal.
  • Be prepared by wearing supportive and comfortable shoes and socks, and carrying a medical ID and water
  • Build activity over time, especially if new to being active. If patients are reluctant to begin to exercise, have them ease into increased activity so they don’t overdo it.
