Short walks after meals more beneficial in lowering blood sugar in diabetes 
A new research from the University of Otago, New Zealand suggests that short walks after meals may help to reduce blood sugar levels. 

According to the study published online October 17, 2016 in the journal Diabetologia, walking after meals was better at lowering blood sugar levels than taking a single 30-minute walk at any time of the day.

The randomized, crossover study included 41 adults with type 2 diabetes, who were advised to walk either for 30 minutes each day, or to walk for 10 minutes after each main meal. The primary outcome of postprandial glycaemia was assessed during the 3 h after a meal by the incremental area under the blood glucose curve (iAUC). The post-meal blood sugar levels declined 12% on average when the subjects walked after meals vs those who walked once any time of the day.
