Joslin Diabetes Center releases new low impact exercise video

BOSTON - Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, the world leader in diabetes research and care, announced today that it has released Keep Moving!...Keep Healthy with Diabetes, the first video designed by Joslin Diabetes Center specifically for people with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Created by the Exercise Physiology Department at Joslin, the video offers low-impact exercises designed for people who have physical limitations or are new to exercise programs. These exercise routines have been used by Joslin patients as part of Joslin's clinical practice, and can be an ideal tool for those looking for low-impact exercises to help get the physical activity they need.

The Keep Moving!...Keep Healthy with Diabetes video costs $24.95, and is available by calling Joslin at 800-344-4501 or by visiting Joslin's online store at www.store.joslin.org.

Exercise is an important way to delay or prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes as well as to improve the health of people with diabetes. A recent Joslin Diabetes Center study showed that obese adults who lost just seven percent of their weight - or 16 pounds in a 220-pound, 5'5" tall woman - and did moderate-intensity physical exercise for six months such as the exercises on the Keep Moving! video, improved their major blood vessel function by approximately 80 percent, regardless of whether or not they had type 2 diabetes.

"Physical limitations often prevent many people who want to improve their fitness from doing so, but these limitations do not need to stop them from exercising. In fact for people with physical limitations, having a regular exercise routine is very important since they otherwise tend to lead sedentary lives," said Cathy Mullooly, M.S., R.C.E.P., C.D.E., Clinical Exercise Physiology Specialist at Joslin. "This is a unique resource, especially for those with type 2 diabetes. It is
