There are a huge number of sports on offer at university. You may already understand how exercise affects your blood glucose levels and have your own plan in place for making adjustments to your insulin and carbohydrate intake before, during and after exercise. However, taking a fresh look at things can be helpful, especially if you are starting a new sport.
New sports will be on offer at university. There are restrictions on SCUBA diving for people with diabetes. Ask your diabetes team or the sports captain if you are unsure.
Tell those around you that you have type 1 and carry a medical ID. Always ensure that you have hypo treatment with you.
For more information on exercise, plus a blog article kindly provided by Francesca Annan (Paediatric Diabetes Dietitian Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust), visit our website.
Before making any changes to your insulin regime please consult with your diabetes healthcare team.
