More than 50 people with Type 1

diabetes from around the UK gathered

at Loughborough University to work with

sports specialists to learn about blood

glucose management techniques, and

to conquer fears about exercising at the

Animas Sports and Exercise Weekend.

Recent UK research has shown that

people with insulin-dependent diabetes

often report a reduction in their activity

levels around the time of diagnosis. Key

barriers to exercise reported are a fear of

hypoglycaemic episodes and a perceived

lack of knowledge and confidence of how

to maintain blood glucose control whilst

exercising. The aim of the weekend was

to directly address these fears about

increasing activity levels. Some of the

attendees were on the Animas Vibe insulin

pump. The three-day event included

expert advice from Dr Ian Gallen on

lifestyle and active diabetes management,

with specially structured exercise sessions

designed to encourage participants to

undertake activities including endurance

and high intensity training and spinning.

As inspiration to live a life without

limits, motivational speaker and Animas

Hero Roddy Riddle will be pushing himself

to the limits as he completes Beyond the

Ultimate Ice Ultra Marathon in February

2015 and hopes to encourage other

people with Type 1 diabetes to live their

life without limits.

Dr Ian Gallen, Consultant Physician

and Endocrinologist at Royal Berkshire

Foundation Trust and Honorary Senior

Clinical Lecturer, University of Oxford

Medical School says, "Many people with

Type 1 diabetes avoid exercising for fear of

hypoglycaemia or unexplained high blood

sugars. Better access to structured sport

and exercise education programmes for

people with Type 1 diabetes, such as

this, is something I would like to see more

freely available across the UK."
