How may physiotherapy helps...

Converse with your doctor about the correct exercise
Examine your blood sugar level before and after exercising.
Wear proper footwear.
Check your feet for bruises when you are working out.
Have plenty of water before, during and after exercising.
Take extra precautions when exercising in intense weather conditions.
Warm up before practicing and cool down afterward.
Have a snack handy in case if your blood sugar level drops down.
Consult with your doctor before injecting insulin.

Exercise plays a vital role in the safe, effective treatment of diabetes. A physiotherapist can examine a diabetic patient and evaluate and decide whether there is any muscle weakness, irregularity, impairment of sensation or pain accompanied by excess over body weight.

A physiotherapist plays an essential role by setting up an individualized exercise program to manage diabetes. Much of the time physiotherapist will work closely with your doctor to manage and deal with your glucose level.
