Physical Activity And Diabetes Guideline Recommendations

Children with diabetes or prediabetes should be encouraged to engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.

Adults with diabetes should be advised to perform at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity (50 70% of maximum heart rate), spread over at least 3 days/week with no more than 2 consecutive days without exercise.

Evidence supports that all individuals, including those with diabetes, should be encouraged to reduce sedentary time, particularly by breaking up extended amounts of time (>90 minutes) spent sitting.

In the absence of contraindications, adults with type 2 diabetes should be encouraged to perform resistance training at least twice per week.
