I never exercised much before being diagnosed with T2 almost two years ago. I took my CDE classes and began walking at least 5 times a week. During the first year, I also added aerobics 4 days a week and still walked at least 4 days a week. My numbers began to fall mostly in the "normal" ranges. I followied my meal plan and kept exercising. After getting a bad result from a bone density test, my doctor told me walking was good, but I needed to do something weight-bearing. So I began doing a workout with weights tape three times a week. Guess what? My glucose readings dropped a lot. Now they are on the low side of normal on the days I do my weights. Is it exercising with weights that did this? Or simply adding three more workouts, 45 minutes each? Any opinions or similar experiences?
