High Intensity Training as a novel treatment for impaired awareness of hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetes

Researchers at the University of Dundee would like to recruit people with type 1 to take part in a study that's using high intensity exercise (short bursts of exercise that increase the heart rate) as a treatment for reduced awareness of low blood sugars.

To be eligible to take part you must:

  • have had type 1 for over five years
  • be aged between 18 and 60 
  • have difficulty with hypo awareness or experience frequent hypos
