Someone told you NOT to do really great exercise just because you have to balance your blood sugar at the same time? Well that's true for any exercise, not just tae bo, and it doesn't mean we should avoid that activity and allow diabetes to run our life, it means we should figure out how to keep our sugar up DURING the activity so we can enjoy it!!!
I'm a competitive powerlifter and you can bet that training is hard work, but I studied my diabetes so I could maintain healthy blood sugars during it and I placed 7 world records in the World Powerlifting Association this past may. Hard work is great! (http://gingervieira.blogspot.com)

We should find the exercise we love and learn how to balance our diabetes around it. Regular exercise will help anyone with Type 1 or Type 2 maintain better sugars, decrease our insulin needs and of course, increase our sensitivity to insulin. All good things!
Not to mention, diabetes or not, exericse keeps you healthy in a hundred other ways!
