Will taking a walk after a high carb meal keep blood sugar down?

Will taking a 10-minute walk after a high carb meal keep your blood sugar down?

  1. Hi ,

    Great question. Walking may help! Jen writes here about a study on walking after meals: https://type2diabetes.com/living/walk-after-dinner/

    Many find taking a walk after eating to help - we always still recommend checking your blood sugar after and seeing how it does for you as it can vary by person, and how you are feeling after.

    One of our advocates writes here about how taking a walk after eating dinner has helped drive down her high blood sugars and more.

    Hope this helps. Keep us updated if you try!

    Best,
