Firstly, can I suggest you join are diabetes community. The reason I suggest this is because diet and exercise advice is not the same for diabetics as non-diabetics:


But to answer your questions, running versus walking rather depends on the individual. 30 minutes of walking a day is very good particularly if you get the pulse up. but join the diabetes group and ask for advice there. Best of luck, you are doing well.


I am already a part of that group Ganeshji.But I have been told that reducing weight will help me to reverse my diabetes.Thanks for the support n advise though.
