It is particularly critical for diabetics/pre-diabetics (who may have health complications that must be managed) to have the knowledge and understanding of pre-/post-exercise nutrition and how to engage in physical activity on medication and/or insulin to exercise safely and effectively. Diabetics are prone to health issues, such as soft-tissue injury and overuse injury as well as delayed-onset hypoglycemia from exercise, so it’s important to know how to compensate with proper nutrition, nutrition timing, and exercise intensity.
