It is common for people with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) to have a love-hate relationship with exercise. On the one hand they want to enjoy the physical and psychosocial benefits that come with regular exercise (‘The Love’), while on the other hand there is the issue of having to deal with the burdensome day-to-day management of different forms of physical activity, which can have varying effects on glycaemic management (‘The Hate’). Whatever your patients’ exercise goal e.g., weight management, improved fitness or better sports performance including exercise in the management mix introduces a whole new level of complexity for individuals with T1D, their carers and healthcare professionals.
