6 Reasons 10,000 Steps A Day Helps Type 2 Diabetes

I can’t think of a single person I know who has diabetes that wanted this health problem. No one wakes up hoping to get it, but too many of us don’t do enough to avoid it. We postpone exercising because we have too much to do. Then we’re too tired. Besides, doesn’t ten thousand steps sound like a really long way to walk?

It’s not about the 10,000 steps, which by the way, may be around 5 miles for some people. It’s about moving.
