Managing Diabetes with Exercise

The Functional Health Diabetes Program

It is proven that exercise is one of the safest and most effective ways of managing Type ll diabetes. In some cases, it has reversed the effects, resulting in a reduction in medication.

Our program utilises Milon Smart Medical Exercise Equipment. The Milon system combines both resistance and cardiovascular exercise in a safe environment. No matter the level of condition or fitness level, our diabetes program sees results including a reduction in HbA1c, improved control of blood sugar and increased energy levels.
