Walking for only 10 minutes improves blood sugar after meals.

Several studies show how diabetes, particularly type 2,  can benefit from exercise, however in this study it shows that even the slightest change can help in reducing blood glucose levels. The study examined whether taking 10-minute episodes of walking after each meal provided greater benefit than a single 30-minute walk. The investigators found that a 10-minute walk after each meal provides additional benefit in lowering blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes compared with a single 30-minute daily walk.
