Dear Busy Body
If you click on 'Dietn Food'at the top of this page and then on ‘Food as Medicine' and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes’ you will be able to read some of the article referring to diabetes. You must ask your doctor what type of exercise you are allowed to do. An exercise that should be acceptable is going for brisk walks for about 30 min every day, BUT only if your doctor gives permission. For more detailed advice about the type of snacks you as an individual require before and after exercise you will need to consult a registered dietitian, because it depends what your individual diabetic diet prescription requires in terms of snacks before and after exercise. If you have as yet not consulted a registered dietitian for your individual diet prescription then visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area.
