INTRODUCTION: The effects of glargine/glulisine insulin regimen on exercise blood glucose (BG) and strategies to limit exercise-induced hypoglycemia are not well-documented. Intermittent high intensity exercise has been proposed to prevent hypoglycemia but its effect in participants with type 1 diabetes using glargine/glulisine is unknown. METHODS: The study used a repeated-measures design with three randomly ordered exercise conditions. Eleven participants completed 60 minutes of moderate intensity exercise at 50% VO2peak for all conditions. These conditions varied as follows: participants ingested 0 g of glucose pre-exercise (0G + MOD), 30 g of glucose pre-exercise (30G + MOD), or 0 g of glucose pre-exercise, but performed brief high intensity intervals interspersed every 2 minutes (0G + MOD/INT) during exercise. If BG fell < 4 mmol/l, a 20% dextrose solution was started to maintain BG between 4 and 5 mmol/l. RESULTS: Consuming 30 g of glucose before exercise (30G + MOD) resulted in a higher pre-exercise BG (11.7 ± 2.7 mmol/l) compared to 0 g of glucose before exercise (0G + MOD: 7.8 ± 4.0 and 0G + MOD/INT: 9.2 ± 3.5mmol/l), P < 0.05. A dextrose infusion was required in 7/11, 4/11 and 1/11 participants for 0G + MOD, 0G + MOD/INT, 30G + MOD conditions, respectively, P < 0.02. The duration and the quantity of dextrose infused were greatest in the 0G + MOD condition, moderate in the to 0G + MOD/INT condition, and minimal in the 30G + MOD condition, P < 0.01. CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that both moderate intensity exercise with a 30 g pre-exercise glucose beverage or interspersed with intermittent high intensity sprints may be safe strategies to prevent hypoglycemia in glargine/glulisine users.
