AIM Exercise tests evaluate the effects of physical activity, which is one of the four recommendations for diabetes treatment. An adjusted and accurate measure of aerobic capacity in diabetic patients is thus needed. This study compared two estimates of aerobic fitness (maximal oxygen uptake vs physical working activity PWC170, i.e., the workload at a pulse of 170) and the usual versus a reduced insulin dose in preadolescent boys with type 1 diabetes mellitus. METHODS Sixteen prepubertal type… CONTINUE READING
