Abstract

BACKGROUND: Few papers focus on exercise-related blood glucose (BG) in patients on continuous sc insulin infusion (CSII) or multiple daily injections (MDI) with glargine. AIM: The main objective was to evaluate the degree of glycemic control in Type 1 diabetes mellitus adolescents on CSII doing physical activity with pump switched on or off. These findings were also compared with a small group of patients on MDI with glargine. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Eight patients on CSII (basal rate continued or turned off in alternating sessions) and 5 on MDI joined 4 sessions of moderate-severe exercise. RESULTS: Post-exercise BG significantly increased with the pump off and was unchanged/decreased with the pump on and MDI groups vs baseline. The hypoglycemia rate was not different among the 3 groups at any time. Pump on: hypoglycemias more frequent both at bedtime (p=0.031) and at awakening (p
