No Short Cuts for Physical Exercise in Diabetes!


I do not know about your place, but the health supplement in my Sunday newspaper invariably carries an advertisement for an electrical device which substitutes a daily walk or any other form of working out.

This apparently magic device costs just about $100 and I almost fell for it until I came across the link below:

Now one may argue that a large trial could show that electrical stimulation does indeed burn as many calories as conventional physical exercise, but I would not believe this until I read a paper in a respected medical journal.

So save yourself the embarrassment of asking your physician if you should buy an electrical stimulator, and get your walking shoes out instead! However, you should let me know if you come across a valid alternative to exercise for diabetes management, because I am as lazy as anyone else!
