As the gap between reaching optimal medication therapy for diabetes management grows, so does the need for improved medical centers. But how does this happen? If pharmacists were to “utilize their clinical expertise in monitoring and managing diabetes medication plans to positively impact health outcomes and empower patients to actively manage their health,” then the number of people with diabetes could decline (Smith, 2009). Pharmacists are highly accessible medical professionals that are not used to their full potential (Smith, 2009).

Before discussing how exercise affects diabetes it is important for one to know what diabetes is. “Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism-the way our bodies use digested food for growth and energy”(Gerdes 13).
