Quick overview

24 January 2023 6pm - 7pm CET This webinar is organised by ESDN Diabetes and aims to provide the basics regarding the management of nutrition and insulin therapy in people with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, who practice physical exercise. It’s essential to understand the variables that determine a different glycemic response during physical activity to guarantee our patients the opportunity to play sports safely while having fun. Nutrition is an integral part of ensuring optimal sports performance. People with diabetes, especially if treated with advanced closed-loop insulin pumps, need to be educated on the intake of CHO in terms of quantity and quality. The moderator is the dietitian Marina Armellini.
