The fitness guide no person with diabetes should be without Nearly one in 11 people in the United States are affected by diabetes, a staggering number with both personal and social costs. If you’re one of these millions of people with diabetes or prediabetes, the American Diabetes Association  recommends two types of physical activity as  primary components of your self-care: aerobic exercise and strength training. Featuring everything from a starter walking plan to strength and resistance training plans, Diabetes & Keeping Fit For Dummies offers all the guidance and step-by-step instruction you need to make exercise a priority in your diabetes management.
