Join I Challenge Diabetes for an active and informative series focused on fitness with diabetes!
Our program NO BARRIERS is here to empower individuals 18+ with diabetes to overcome obstacles to exercise. We know that people want to live healthier lifestyles, but recurring hypoglycaemic episodes during or after exercise can derail our best intentions and stop us from reaching our fitness goals.
You do not have to be training for a national run to join us. In fact, we are here to empower anyone wishing to push themselves a little further, safely, with diabetes strategies to get you to your goals.
We will be working with our partners at Abbott Diabetes Care to hook you up with your own Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System during this program. This technology helps you to see your blood sugar trends in real-time, so you can learn how your body responds to different types of exercise and make a plan accordingly. We will be supporting you throughout the program to analyze your blood sugar trends and make changes to your workout plan that lead to success!
