About this book

Introduction

There has been a recent surge of new data on the subject of exercise and sport in type I diabetes, as well as great interest from the multidisciplinary healthcare teams looking after such patients. Providing advice and support to enable athletes to manage their diabetes during and after sport is an essential part of diabetes care.

 

Type I Diabetes: Clinical Management of the Athlete outlines best practice and scientific progress in the management of people with type I diabetes who undertake a sport at any level.  The book explores endocrine response to exercise, hypoglycemia and dietetics in the diabetic patient, and provides real-life examples of type I diabetes management at the professional athlete level.  It is the first source of reference for specialists in diabetes when seeking advice on how to manage their patient and provides practical advice for equipping the type I diabetes patient with the ability to fulfill their sporting potential.
