Having seen reference in yet another topic to diabetes and exercise not being natural bedfellows, I do wonder sometimes what world people live in.
As a T1 since the age of 13, I've always been active, whether running around with friends as a child, cycling tours (90 miles a day as a teenager), playing sports, winning national competitions,running sub-two hour half marathons, etc.
Why is there almost a common view that having diabetes means that you have to be scared of participating in sports or exercise? Hypos are not something to be afraid of. They are a fact of life that can be easily managed, as long as you are not hypo-unaware. Hypo management is straightforward, and even easy.
Maybe I'm just a bit more blasé about it than many, but I've always thought that, and was always encouraged by medical teams (and the BDA back in the day) that, exercise is just another part of life and something that everyone should be doing, especially those with diabetes. Am I missing something?
