Abstract

Adding repeated sprints to moderate-intensity exercise in the laboratory decreases hypoglycaemia risk in people with Type 1 diabetes. It is unclear whether ingesting carbohydrates before exercise increases blood glucose levels if combined with repeated sprints, how reproducible blood glucose responses to structured exercise are, and if adding repeated sprints is also beneficial under free-living conditions. Here we show that with prior carbohydrate supplementation, incorporating repeated sprints during exercise does not further increase blood glucose; intra-individual blood glucose responses to structured exercise is reproducible; and adding repeated 10-second sprints to exercise lessens the decrease in glucose levels in a free-living setting.
