YOUR GET-STARTED WITH EXERCISE checklist
Consult your doctor before trying out a new exercise regimen. They can help you pick something suitable and safe.
Make sure your BGLS are at 6mmol/L before you start, and check them regularly during exercise.
Keep hypos at bay by having a bottle of water handy at all times, and make sure your stash of fast-acting carbs is close by.
Having type 2 can make you more susceptible to nerve damage and circulation problems in your feet, so get them checked by a GP or podiatrist before starting a new exercise program.
Stop any activity that causes you pain or discomfort, and make note of particular symptoms. Don’t be afraid to discuss any symptoms that trouble you with your doctor.
Keep a bottle of water nearby so you don’t get dehydrated while exercising.
