Join us in Western Australia's first home-based study looking at the effect of sprinting during exercise in Type 1 Diabetes
Recruiting people aged 14 to 35 with Type 1 Diabetes who exercise regularly
What are we trying to find out?
We are testing if short sprints during exercise can reduce the number of times people with type 1 diabetes experience low blood glucose levels due to exercise.
What will the study involve?
You will be asked to include sprints during your normal exercise.
You can do the study at home, with regular visits to Princess Margaret Hospital. You will be asked to exercise at least 3 times a week and to wear a continuous glucose sensor and a heart rate monitor.
All required equipment will be supplied.
Who can participate in the Sprint Trial?
We are looking for individuals with Type 1 Diabetes, who exercise regularly and are aged between 14 and 35 years.
You must have had Type 1 Diabetes for more than one year, and have an HbA1c of less than 9%.
A complete account of your involvement in the study is outlined in the study Participant Information Sheet.
What will the researchers look at?
We will be looking at your sensor glucose levels, a food and exercise diary, and an activity and heart rate monitor.
Who has approved the Sprint Trial?
The sprint trial has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children. HREC's protect the interests of people who agree to participate in human research studies.
