Tak­ing brief walks af­ter ev­ery meal may help peo­ple with di­a­betes con­trol blood sugar bet­ter than a sin­gle longer daily walk, ac­cord­ing to a study in ‘Di­a­betolo­gia’. For two weeks, 41 peo­ple with type 2 di­a­betes (av­er­age age 60) ei­ther walked for 10 min­utes shortly af­ter each of their three main meals or walked once for 30 min­utes at any time of day. Then they switched reg­i­mens for the next two weeks. Blood sugar con­trol, mea­sured dur­ing the three hours af­ter each meal, was sig­nif­i­cantly bet­ter when peo­ple did the post-meal walks.
