FOR PEOPLE WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES WHO ARE 18 YEARS AND OLDER
AMSL Diabetes are proud to announce that we are holding the Sports and Exercise Weekend again in 2017!
Have you had problems with hypoglycaemia/hyperglycaemia following exercise?
Have you wondered how intense prolonged exercise can affect your blood glucose levels in the short term and long term?
What changes do you routinely make to your basal insulin or basal pump rates on a daily basis and while exercising?
We aim to bring together those with type 1 diabetes with a common interest in sports and exercise. We are proud to introduce some of Australia's leading specialists who will share their knowledge and experience about sport and exercise with type 1 diabetes. Be inspired by both local and international motivational experts and how they achieved their goals.
By the end of this weekend, you will be armed with new information and advice that you will be able to put into practice to benefit your diabetes management whilst exercising.
You don't need to be a fitness guru to get the most out of the weekend!
