Timing is Key! Get the maximum benefit of exercise 1½ to 2 hours after a meal when your blood glucose tends to be the highest (but exercise at any time is better than none!). Be mindful of the peak action times of certain diabetes medications. Exercise at those peak times could cause a low blood glucose. Check with your diabetes educator, physician or pharmacist to find out more about the action of your diabetes medication(s).
