Walking better than high-intensity exercise for diabetics

Walking, strolling and standing more during the day is better for sugar regulation in diabetics than an hour of high-intensity exercise. 'The standard for people with diabetes is to spend thirty minutes to an hour doing high-intensity exercise every day. As it turns out, this norm is insufficient,' says Bernard Duvivier, a researcher with the department of Human Biology and Human Movement Sciences at Maastricht University. Duvivier published his findings on Thursday 1 December in the European scientific journal Diabetologia.
