Brief Summary:
Backgrounds/Aims: It was the aim to prospectively study the optimum regime of "preventive" carbohydrate administration for prevention of hypoglycaemic episodes during a standardized bout of physical activity.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hypoglycaemia Other: low amount of carbohydrates Other: high amount of carbohydrates Other: Rapid-acting carbohydrates Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Research design and methods: 24 patients with type 1 diabetes participated in one experiment without physical activity and in three experiments with a 4 km, 60 min hike starting at 2 p.m., either administering 2 x 10 g or 2 x 20 g carbohydrates (muesli bars) before starting and at 30 min (during the hike). Plasma glucose was determined with a laboratory method and additional carbohydrates needed to treat hypoglycaemia between 2 and 8 p.m. were recorded.
