If you have diabetes, staying physically active is of the utmost importance to help you better manage your condition. And if you have prediabetes, you may have heard or read that aiming for at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week may help you lower the chances of going on to develop diabetes. But what if physical activity is a challenge for you? Maybe you’re unable to stand up for any significant length of time. Perhaps you have neuropathy in your feet, arthritis in your knees or swelling in your legs or feet. Or you’re confined to a wheelchair. Or maybe you sit for long hours at a desk day in and day out. It’s hard to be physically active in these situations.
