Approach to the exercise consultation in Type 1 Diabetes: CGM, CSII, MDI

Many patients with type 1 diabetes have a love-hate relationship with exercise/physical activity.

This webinar will cover:

  • The importance of exercise in T1DM
  • Barriers to exercise
  • Different forms of exercise and their impact on glycaemia
  • Individual goals of exercise
  • Pros and cons of MDI
