Though her schedule is busy, Patti LaBelle finds time to exercise
All food aside, Patti also recognizes the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle when living with diabetes. Exercise has been proven to help the body’s sensitivity to insulin and will also help manage glucose levels. LaBelle is naturally a very busy person and credits her stage performances to give her that regular blast of cardio that is needed to help her manage her disease. As LaBelle puts it, as a diabetic she needs to “check herself before she wrecks herself” and exercise is just one way to do that.
Even with her busy schedule, that just seems to be getting busier. LaBelle will put her health above all else. That means that even feeling just the slightest bit off will send the singer off to her GP for a check-up.
