Male diabetes patients who did a daily 45-minute moderate exercise routine spent less time in a hyperglycemic state during a 24-hour period than their sedentary counterparts and those who took three 15-minute walks, a small study indicated. However, engaging in daily living activities such as walking "during prolonged sedentary behavior forms a valuable strategy in the management of type 2 diabetes, especially in those patients who are unable or reluctant to perform structured exercise," researchers reported in Diabetes Care.
