eeping yourself healthy when you have Type 2 Diabetes can be a challenge. However, according to Diabetes Forecast (September/October 2020, page 40), people with type 2 Diabetes who took a 10-minute walk after dinner had a smaller rise in their after-meal blood glucose levels than when they took a 30-minute walk at another time of the day. The data comes from a study which was published in Diabetologia. To get more information on diabetes, visit Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, CHOMP’s, Diabetes and Nutrition website.
