Life style modification is the corner stone in the management of diabetes mellitus. Achievement of 'normal' BMI, cessations of smoking and regular exercise are important in the prevention of diabetic complications. A recent concept is that exercise can, like insulin or metformin, be prescribed to patients for optimal benefit.
For this reason, the CNDP organized a symposium on exercise prescription for doctors and allied health services. It covered the concept of exercise prescription and also solutions to some practical problems.
The symposium was held in March 1 and March 2, 2005 in M Block, Lecture Room, G/F, Queen Elizabeth Hospital. About 50 doctors attended the symposium.
