    Abstract

    Diagnosis of type 1 diabetes (T1D) has serious, life changing implications. Learning to understand complex medication regimes and glucose regulation requires support and education. Introducing physical activity alongside these complexities brings additional challenges. It is known that physical activity levels in children with T1D are generally less than that of the general population1,2. Understanding energy expenditure and careful insulin adjustment/titration for physical activity participation requires ongoing, appropriate, individualised education and behavioural support 3 . Appropriate, person-centred and family based approaches to provide the right support and care need to be considered 3-5.
