Do you have type 1 diabetes and on insulin pump therapy?
Recent experimental evidence suggests that regular, brief bouts of activity can lower blood sugar levels. Breaking up sitting can also help lower blood pressure and improve measurements of vascular health. However, it remains to be determined whether there is a potential benefit of breaking up sitting time in individuals with type 1 diabetes.
Who can participate?
You may be able to participate if you are:
