Getting well—faster—through exercise.

It's a proven fact that exercise lowers blood glucose levels and helps prevent cardiovascular disease, the number one killer of people with diabetes.

There are over 18 million Americans with some form of diabetes. And unfortunately, many of them do not get enough exercise. Study after study has shown that exercise can lower blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol. It reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke, relieves stress, and strengthens the heart, muscles, and bones. Exercise also helps insulin work better, improves blood circulation, and keeps joints flexible.

* The importance of aerobic exercise
* Why strength training is essential
* Workout plans for all levels of fitness
* Nutrition tips...and much more!

The exercises are clearly photographed in easy-to-follow sequences and contain complete descriptions. If you or someone you know suffers from diabetes, you need this book. Exercises for Diabetes will help diabetes sufferers to achieve a healthier, happier, more productive life.
