Industry Presented Webinar: The Role of Physical Activity in Type 2 Diabetes Management and Prevention

It has long been known that physical activity is important in the glycemic and health management of people with type 2 diabetes. It is also well established that being active may prevent or delay diabetes onset and reverse prediabetes. This presentation will cover the main evidence supporting its role in diabetes management and prevention, along with covering the most important activities for adults with type 2 diabetes to undertake.

Learning Objectives:  

  • To understand the independent and combined effects of physical activity and exercise in the management of type 2 diabetes and its prevention
  • To review the most recent evidence on the effects of physical activity in people with type 2 diabetes and which ones are most important to undertake regularly
  • To deepen the understanding of any potential interactions between activity and diabetes medications
