HI. REDUCING WEIGHT IS AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF CONTROLLING BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS AND ITS COMPLICATIONS. THE RECOMMENDED EXERCISES ARE BRISK WALKING, JOGGING , SWIMMING. AT LEAST 150 MINUTES OF EXERCISES SPREAD OVER A WEEK PERIOD APROXIMATING 30 MINUTES DAILY ON MOST DAYS OF WEEK WILL BE REQUIRED. BESIDES THAT U NEED A DIABETIC DIET CHART ACCORDING TO YOUR BODY WEIGHT AND LEVEL OF ACTIVITY. U YOU ALSO NEED TO UNDERGO A THYROID FUNCTION TEST AS IT CAN ALSO BE THE CAUSE OF INCREASE IN WEIGHT.
