The study, today in Diabetes Treatment published, found that three brief post-food walks were as effective at reducing blood sugar levels over a day as a 45-minute walk of the same easy-to-moderate pace. Moreover, post-meal walking was a lot more effective than a sustained walk at reducing blood sugar for up to three hours following a dinner. 'These findings are very good news for people in their 70s and 80s who may feel more capable of engaging in intermittent physical activity on a daily basis, especially if the brief walks can be coupled with running errands or walking your dog,' said lead study author Loretta DiPietro, PhD, MPH, seat of the SPHHS Division of Exercise Science.
