Abstract

With the adverse effects of the medicines, physical activity or exercise is considered as the beneficial, harmless treatment regimen for the treatment T2DM. While exercise has been established as a major alternative in the management of diabetes for almost a century now, and its beneficial effects widely broadcasted, this concept is yet to be fully integrated in our environment. This is probably due to widespread poor knowledge and attitudes towards physical activity by health workers and patients in Sub-Saharan Africa. Also a poor belief system as regards exercise in general and for diabetes specifically is predominant. This paper aimed to bring to the fore challenges militating against the adoption of physical activity by health professionals and diabetics, and proffers solutions to them.
