Hi everyone,

We know sport, exercise, and type 1 can be tricky to navigate for you and your child. There’s a lot to think about. How much insulin has your child got on board? Are they playing in a football match or running around in the playground? When and what did they last eat?
Join us at our Sport and Exercise Q&A Session with our panel of experts who’ll help to answer your questions about your child taking part in sport and exercise.

Meet the panel
  • Dr Rob Andrews, Associate Professor of Diabetes at Exeter University
  • Sam Barnard, Paediatric Diabetes Specialist Nurse at CHFT
  • Lindsay Cary, Advanced Specialist Dietitian at Staffordshire Hospital
The details of the session
  • When: Thursday, 22 October
  • Time: 7.00-8.30pm
  • How: To register for the session complete this short form.

This sounds great. Do you intend to do anything similar for adults?
We have Type 1 and do exercise too so experience many of the same issues.
Ok, so we may not run around the playground quite as often but Type 1 and exercise does not stop when we reach 18. For some of us it starts later.

Hi Helli,

Thanks for your message. Diabetes UK has recently run two virtual sessions for adults living with type 1 about Sport and Exercise. However, unfortunately, there aren't any more planned for the rest of the year.

However, there will be two sessions you might be interested in, #TheBig1 Online - Ageing well with type 1 and healthy eating with type 1. Please get in touch with south.west@diabetes.org.uk if you'd like any more information.

Many thanks
Odette

There was a Big1 on Sport and Exercise in September and I understand that there plans for future events. Well worth getting in touch with the Sw team (south.west@diabetes.org.uk) to get more information. There is also a thread specifically for The Big1, where the SW team will post the link for registering for the forthcoming event on Ageing Well.
