How Sitting All Day Can Erase A Workout
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

After a 30 minute walk it is important not to just sit the rest of the day. It could negate the 30 minute walk for BG control. Important to move a little all day or lengthen the walk by 10 or 15 minutes. It seems a good time to exercise is after your last meal. That seems to keep BS under control the rest of the day.

A DiabetesTeam Member

I believe it's up to the person and your body. U can use weight bands and work out before u even get out of bed. I broke my back car wreck 2015 and that's how I worked out. So I don't walk even today… read more

Sleep And Diabetes
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

It seems that I have insomnia at night lately. Is this a common problem with diabetes or could it be from consuming Zevia cola that has the natural sweetener of the Stevia plant but also has caffeine? Are sleep supplements safe for diabetics? I took a melatonin supplement last night and feel fatigued and groggy this morning. My fbs was 114 and wondering if melatonin can raise blood sugar? I take metformin and 2.5 mg of glipizide once a day.
