Activity is hands down one of the best ways to lower your blood sugar and keep it controlled. As far as I’m concerned anyway.

I see myself as quite an active person and, although I may often do stereotypical things to burn through some calories, I also think there may be a few things I get up to that may surprise fellow diabetics when it comes to calorie burning and glucose controlling.
So, this blog is going to be the first in a series of short pieces that showcase a few of the different ways I get off my arse and take steps to help keep my BG in check.
