3 comments on “Should We Prescribe Exercise for Type 2 Diabetics ?

  • Who writes these headlines??? There are some questions for which the answers are non-controversial. “Should (fill in the blank) be advised to exercise?” is one.

    • I do :-) … The concept of “prescribing” exercise and which type was the focus of the post. Suggestions for other titles always welcome

  • It seems like a “prescription” for exercise has been shown to be beneficial in so many areas from orthopedics to cardiology to psychiatry that it should be axiomatic first line therapy unless there is a strong contraindicating condition. It seems we humans are designed to move (as any 5-year-old can demonstrate) and bad things happen when we stop. The headline seemed to be questioning the truth of this although the text was as you say a discussion of the type of exercise to prescribe.
