There is evidence that physical activity is well known to increase the risk of hypoglycaemia in people with type 1 diabetes.
However, little is known about the effect of water-based activities on blood glucose levels. It is also unclear how people with T1D manage their blood glucose level while at the beach or at a public and private pool.
It is why UWA PhD student, Kristina Abramoff who is working with the Children's Diabetes Centre, is inviting you to complete a 30-minute survey designed to inform us about both your experience and how you manage your blood glucose during water-based activities.
Who can participate?
To be eligible for the study, participants must:
Have had type 1 diabetes for more than a year or a parent/carer of someone with T1D for more than a year.
And been to the beach, public or private pool at least twice in the past 12 months.
What does participation involve?
