Control My Glucose

A comprehensive exercise and wellness programme to prevent, reverse or manage Diabetes conditions.

Learn how to take control your Glucose!

 

Learning how to control your blood sugar can be overwhelming. There is a lot of information around what you should and shouldn’t do. ExerciseWell’s ‘Control my Glucose’ programme is designed to help you navigate the necessary adaptations that will help you control your blood glucose level. The programme is for anyone who has Pre, Gestational, Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. You will be working with one of our Clinical Exercise Physiologists who are vastly experienced in working with people who have Diabetes and all the side effects that my come with it.

According to Diabetes New Zealand, Exercise and healthy lifestyle are essential in controlling your diabetes, preventing any further risks to your eyesight, foot health and organ health. What you should be doing changes depending on your specific requirements.

 

Our ‘Control My Glucose’ programme helps you gain control through education, building a regular exercise routine, and healthy lifestyle coaching. All your exercise sessions will be supervised by a Clinical Exercise physiologist to minimise the risks involved when exercising with diabetes. According to the New Zealand Heart Foundation, people with diabetes are two to four times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke than people who don’t have diabetes. At ExerciseWell we always complete a full assessment of your medical history, heart health, Glucose check, undertake a 12 lead ECG at rest and under stress, balance test, and any musculoskeletal testing we think necessary.
