From the News of the "No Duh."

This article says that diabetics can get more blood sugar improvement from exercise than from medication or food changes.

I'll go out on a limb and say they're referring to Type 2 diabetics since us Type 1's die without insulin. :)

But nevertheless, I can get what the study is saying.... a long run lowers my blood sugars for several hours - last Sunday's 12 miler kept me lower for nearly 15 hours. However, the lack of carbohydrates at a meal will only affect your blood sugar until... well, until you eat carbohydrates. And once you do, the body doesn't handle them much differently just because you didn't eat them last meal.

As far as medication goes, I'm also not surprised. A body with a faster metabolism will respond better to all things, including medication.
