Diabetes diet: The surprising food you need ‘every day’ to lower high blood sugar levels

Physical exercise helps lower your blood sugar level. You should aim for 2.5 hours of activity a week, according to the NHS.

Diabetes UK says: “Being physically active is good for diabetes. Whether you feel able to go for a run or a swim, or can manage some arm stretches or on-the-spot walking while the kettle boils, it all makes a difference.”

Moving more can help the body use insulin better by increasing insulin sensitivity.

Moreover, it can help you look after your blood pressure, because high blood pressure means you’re more at risk of diabetes complications.
