Managing Exercise and Type 1 Diabetes
Join Dr. Michael Riddell for a 1-hour presentation discussing managing exercise with Type 1 Diabetes, followed by time for your questions. All ages are welcome, and accompanying kids will receive free, unlimited access to FunworX (supervision not offered).
Dr. Riddell has published 150 original research articles, 18 book chapters, and a globally referenced patient guidebook on the metabolic and hormonal responses to exercise and stress in health and diabetes. He currently holds research grants from various government agencies, foundations and industry partners totaling in excess of $3M. His research team uses a broad selection of innovative models and techniques to discover how regular exercise, stress and diabetes influence metabolism and health. Riddell’s team of students and fellows are advancing new therapeutic approaches and technologies that will enable people living with diabetes to exhibit better metabolic control with fewer burdens. Presently, he is helping to develop an “exercise-smart” artificial pancreas for active people living with type 1 diabetes (NIH). He is leading studies on new strategies for improved blood sugar balance during exercise and sport (industry and foundation funds) and he is overseeing work done on the effects of stress hormones on lipid metabolism (NSERC). Riddell is an author on several international guidelines on exercise and diabetes and he leads teams in establishing community-based sport programs that enhance the translation of research findings to families of children living with type 1 diabetes. He is considered the international authority on exercise and stress hormones and how they affect diabetes metabolism.
