A friend of mine that has diabetes said he’s somewhat happy about it. He said he’s now forced to do those things he has always known he should be doing but was not doing and he has stopped doing all those things he knew he should stop doing but was still doing… all thanks to diabetes. Wow, what a way to look at it. This is a really positive attitude that can do everyone a whole world of good, if you look at it that way.
When it comes to exercising as a way of managing your diabetes, you should start slowly. You don’t have to suddenly start jogging great distances the first time you start. Engaging in intensive exercises too suddenly might cause you problems. But gradually exercising on a daily basis is the way to go. You can start with jogging a little distance, then increase it gradually until you start jogging long distances in a couple of weeks or even months.
There exists lots of herbs that can help you manage diabetes. I know you might not like herbs, but there are more proofs coming out every day that herbs help. But of course, ensure that you get professional advice on the type of herb to take. The good thing about herbs for diabetes is that most of them have no side effects, unlike medical drugs that usually have side effects.
