Exercise helps your body use insulin better.

Explanation:
Exercise helps your body use insulin better, strengthens your heart and bones, improves blood circulation and reduces your risk of heart disease. It can also improve your mood and sleep and decrease stress.
2

Both strength training and aerobic exercise help to increase insulin sensitivity.

Explanation:
Both strength training and aerobic exercise help to increase insulin sensitivity and if you increase the sensitivity to insulin, your blood sugars ultimately come down and your pancreas doesn't have to work so hard.
