A Sydney University Medical School randomised control trial found the exT1D program reduces exercise related hypoglycaemia by 50% [A] and time spent in hypoglycaemia by 71% [B]. The study also found significant increases in Type 1 Diabetes self management confidence for the prevention of hypoglycaemia around exercise.

In study participants (50% of group) with the highest number of baseline exercise related hypoglycaemic episodes were reduced by 57% [C] and time spent in hypoglycaemia was reduced by 87% [D]. This group also showed significant reductions in self-reported fear of hypoglycaemia as well as hypoglycaemia interfering with leisure activity. Subjects with longest per episode durations of nocturnal hypoglycaemia had a 98% [E] reduction in nocturnal hypoglycaemia. More…

When I found a link to your site I thought I’d give it a go, and Allan, it totally blew me away. The answer to every question I’ve ever wanted to know was here. How to prepare for sport?, How my muscles are effected during sport? and How glucose is taken in?. Thank you so much for all the work you’ve put in. You have changed my life for the better.

I am very pro-active in my management and in my 8 years of research and education of managing my diabetes, this is the best source of information I’ve ever come across!
