Exercise impacts everyone differently. A minority of people with diabetes who exercise may find it unnecessary to make any insulin or dietary changes to accommodate their exercise regime, like the NPH user who does aerobics early in the morning before her breakfast or morning insulin. Most, however, will probably need to make some adjustments.

Editor's Note: The above examples are for illustration only. Please consult your advisors and check your blood sugar often when considering a change to your usual routine.
