Makaya Taffy , Frohock Anne Marie , Lumb Alistair

Background: There is growing recognition of the importance of sports/exercise in children and young people (CYP) with type 1 diabetes (T1DM) [NICE guidance 1.2.47–1.2.53]. In 2014 our Paediatric Diabetes service set up a Diabetes Sports clinic run by a paediatric diabetologist and dietician and an adult diabetologist. Appointments were offered to families of CYP with T1DM who are ‘elite sportspersons’–performing at competitive levels, or regional/national l...
