Q & A

I HAVE T1 DIABETES AND AM STRUGGLING WITH BALANCING INSULIN, FUEL AND BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS. IT’S STARTING TO IMPACT ON MY ENJOYMENT OF RUNNING. I’VE SPENT HOURS GOOGLING BUT JUST NEED SOME SOLID GUIDANCE.

You can find so much information online but what is key with Type 1 diabetes is that it is truly an individual situation which can vary from day to day and even hour to hour, as I’m sure you know. The best thing you can do is to speak to your local specialist diabetic team. They will be able to give you personal, tailored, expert advice. They can also refer you on if they feel it is necessary. It’s a shame diabetes is making running so difficult for you but I’m sure with the right advice you will succeed.
