Study Summary

In this within-subject cross-over study, the investigators hypothesize that corn-starch based supplements taken prior to exercise will decrease the risk of delayed hypoglycemia in adolescents with T1D, improve performance during exercise, and decrease glycemic variability during exercise.

Eligible Conditions
