Saturday 11th November 2023, Oxford.

EXTOD Conference for Adults with Type 1 Diabetes returns in 2023!

Exercising for Type 1 Diabetes (EXTOD) are offering a 1-day education programme focusing on managing glucose around exercise for adults living with Type 1 diabetes.

This interactive programme was developed after EXTOD surveys found that people with Type 1 diabetes find managing glucose around exercise challenging and requested further education on this subject.

How does the course work?

Prior to the course we will ask you to watch a few videos to prepare you for the course.

On the day your will, be provided with a course book and attend 4 workshops. In the small workshops, 14-20 people with Type 1 diabetes and two experts in the field of diabetes and exercise will use interactive tools, clinical cases, shared learning and problem-based tasks to help you to learn. The workshops will support you to manage you exercise choices confidently and safely. Topics covered will include the effects of different types of exercise on blood glucose levels, the rule of threes for managing glucose around exercise, tips on nutrition and exercise, how diabetes technology can support exercising safely, and strategies to plan for exercise.

After the course your will be given access to our website where you will find a summary of the things that you have learnt on the course and videos that you can watch to consolidate your learning.
