Diabetes & Teamsport Exercise – Ideas to manage diabetes with aerobic & anaerobic exercise

Diabetes & Teamsport Exercise – Paul Coker & Dr Rob Andrews discuss approaches to managing type 1 diabetes before, during and after team sports.

In this short video Dr Rob Andrews, a world leading clinical expert on diabetes and exercise, shares some incredible insights and guidance on the latest research into managing type 1 diabetes whilst participating in team sports. This video refers to both the aerobic and anaerobic natures of team sports and starts to unpick the puzzling blood glucose results that most of us with type 1 diabetes have experienced when we try to play games like football, rugby, netball. Surprising Dr Andrews observes that games like tennis where the ball is not always in play appear to have a similar impact on blood glucose response in people with type 1 diabetes.
