OneTouch Sports weekend, diabetes and exercise

NEWS

The focus on the drive to tackle obesity should be more about

health, not weight, according to Dr Oli Williams.

Taking action

The OneTouch

Sports Weekend

2018 organised by

LifeScan took place

on 20-21 October at

Loughborough University, and provided

45 delegates with Type 1 diabetes the

opportunity to learn about managing

diabetes while exercising. The interactive

programme included both educational

and practical sessions and support was

available from healthcare professionals

and OneTouch Heroes.

Following last year's event, an

infographic was produced that

summarised hints and tips from people

with diabetes as well as from Dr Ian Gallen

and Dr Alistair Lumb, both of whom

have specialised in managing diabetes

NEWS

REPORT

for sportspeople. The infographic gives

insights as to achieving the sports and

exercise goals. It's a great summary of the

key messages and thoughts that come

out of such a weekend.

Your journey towards exercising with diabetes

DID

YOU KNOW?

Sir Steve Redgrave,

5 time Olympic, 3 time

Commonwealth Games

and 9 time World Rowing

Championships gold

medallist, is living with

diabetes

Running

1. I maintain good blood glucose (BG) control by taking carbs

(Lucozade) little and often

2. I use the 10 second sprint technique to help prevent

post-exercise hypoglycaemia (see in more detail below)

Cycling

1. I try to keep my BG a bit higher than usual and check my

monitor regularly

2. I reduce my basal by up to 90%, (sometimes 100)

depending on my BG readings

3. I use 2 bottles, one containing squash and one

containing water. I also eat flapjacks

Hiking / Walking

1. I'm on a pump and do a temporary basal

reduction (TBR) of -30%

Football / Hockey / Netball

1. I run higher than usual (BG) and have regular

breaks for Lucozade

2. Blood tests throughout (usually each quarter) and

Lucozade throughout the match

3. "Sugar surf" with micro bolus to maintain

energy level, depending on intensity

Main Challenges

• Managing hypos

• Refueling

• Losing weight

• Monitoring blood glucose levels

10-sec Maximal Sprint Technique

This technique can be used to maintain blood glucose,

while reducing carbohydrate intake. It helps counter the

rapid fall in glycaemia associated with medium intensity
