Sport and exercise have always been a part of Allan’s life. Since being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 18 he has found the lack of ‘how to exercise with type 1 diabetes’ resources remarkable. People with diabetes are constantly told they should exercise and why but seldom how to.
Allan has presented to many people, kids and adults, with outstanding feedback. This is the motivation behind him developing this online, accessible resource where people can learn from the experts and share their experiences with other people with type 1 diabetes.
Like anyone with type 1 diabetes Allan simply wants to have a full, fun and uncomplicated life. His goal for this web site is to provide answers to questions on how to exercise with type 1 diabetes that don’t exist elsewhere.
Allan Bolton is a major contributor on exercise to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) book ‘Straight to the Point’ A guide for adults living with Type 1 Diabetes. He is co-author of the international Fitness Leader’s Handbook.
Allan is a popular presenter choice on exercise and type 1 diabetes at professional scientific meetings, professional development workshops for Diabetes Educators as well as community groups of people living with Type 1 Diabetes and their families.
