Physical exercise remains a cornerstone of therapy for noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, but for insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus the value of exercise is controversial. Regular exercise in both groups allows the individual to attain an ideal body weight, to improve self-image, and to decrease cardiovascular risk factors. Knowledge of the metabolic responses to exercise in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus patients is required for appropriate guidance and management. Careful monitoring can make the participation of diabetic patients in virtually any athletic activity safe and successful. Verf.-Referat
