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.
“It is important to note this research studied people in free living circumstances, as far as I understand these outcomes for a behavioral education program are unparalleled in the exercise and Type 1 Diabetes field.” Allan Bolton.
