Brief description Recently, we found that the risk of hypoglycaemia associated with moderate intensity exercise in type 1 diabetic individuals is opposed by one or several short sprints performed during or after exercise. Our goal is to examine if exercising several hours before sprinting decreases its protective effect, and whether sprinting may impair several hours later the counterregulatory responses to hypoglycaemia. Finally, we will determine if guidelines advocating the use of short sprints reduce the risk of hypoglycaemia under free living conditions.
