TARGETS ADVISED FOR TIME IN RANGE

A conference on Type 1 diabetes and

exercise was held in early November in

Worcester. SporT1Day is the only diabetes

and sports conference led by athletes who

have Type 1 diabetes. The conference

offered structured education from Dr Parth

Narendran, one of the UK's leading expert

diabetologists on sport and exercise.

Chris Bright, founder of The Diabetes

Football Community and Paul Coker,

founder of www.1bloodydrop.com

organised the event. Between them, they

have lived with Type 1 diabetes for more

than 60 years. Bright is a semi-professional

soccer player who also has national caps

for Wales for playing Futsal (the official FA

version of 5-A-Side football), while Coker

climbed Kilimanjaro with a team of fellow

Type 1s and, to celebrate 40 years of living

with Type 1, ran 40 half marathons in a year.

Bright says, "It was an incredible event

that brought together people with Type 1

diabetes and their families from all over the

country to talk about the topic of sport

and exercise. We invited some incredible

HCP's and athletes with Type 1 to share

their recommendations and stories in

a jam-packed day of talks. It was an

exciting day which showed the passion

in the diabetes community for events like

this which inspire, educate and support

people with the condition to continue or

start exercising."

BE UPSTANDING

Lovely to hear from reader Liam Russell

who contacted us to say that he had been

able to use an article published in our April

2019 issue. Our On Your Feet news report

explained the benefits of trying to reduce

the amount of time you spend sitting

down, and included the benefits of using

a 'sit-stand' desk if you spend a lot of time

working on a computer. He emailed us to

say, "wanted let you know I got my sitstand desk today and I'm delighted to be

sending you this email while standing here

at my desk - see attached selfie. Thanks

for all your help with this." See the original

article on page 14 of THIS ISSUE.
