Trialling a New App to Help Manage Glucose Levels During Exercise (acT1ve)
The current exercise guidelines for T1D vary and are challenging to follow.
We have been working with young people with T1D, other researchers and app developers to create a new smartphone exercise app called acT1ve.
The app asks the user questions about the activity they are going to do, and based on this information, gives insulin and carbohydrate advice for the activity. The advice is based on international exercise guidelines. We have tested acT1ve with a small group of young people with T1D to see what they thought about it and would now like to trial it with a larger number of young people to use at home while being active.
