Are Intermittent or Short Bouts of Physical Activity Really Effective for People with Diabetes?

Intermittent physical activity can be especially effective in people with Type 2 diabetes who have higher levels of insulin resistance. People with Type 2 diabetes often have higher after meal glucose levels and a slower return, 2 to 4 hours, to target glucose levels. Doing some type of physical activity, like brisk walking or climbing stairs, for 10-15 minutes after meals can significantly reduce the after meal glucose level.
