Exercise therapy is a cornerstone for the management of both type 2 (T2D) and type 1 (T1D) diabetes at all ages. Regular physical activity (PA) is associated with many well-established health benefits in individuals with diabetes as well as in individuals without diabetes. PA has been shown to improve cardiovascular fitness, metabolic and bone-health and enhance psychological well-being in T2D. Furthermore, regular PA, in combination with other lifestyle changes such as caloric restriction, may prevent or delay T2D development more effectively than pharmacological interventions.
