A Study to Evaluate the Effect of Exercise on Type I Diabetes


About this study

The purpose of this study is to gather preliminary data to better understand acute effects of exercise on glucose metabolism. We will address if subjects with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) are more insulin sensitive during and following a short bout of exercise compared to healthy controls. We will also determine insulin dependent and insulin independent effects on exercise in people with and without type 1 diabetes.
