A:   Hi
diabetes, high BP, and old age group with high weight --- in all 4 conditions exercise is must. Yes medicines can help, but without exercise, they have limited role. with time you need more and more medication and more complications of the diseases with out proper exercise.
I advise you to start with slow walking, and slowly increase your pace. you can take small sip of water during walk. But must start exercise
regards
