Glycemic responses differ by exercise classification (i.e. aerobic, interval, resistance) in individuals with T1D, but the impact of insulin delivery modality (multiple daily injections [MDI], pump, closed loop) on these differences is unclear. Data from the Type 1 Diabetes Exercise Initiative study allowed us to compare glycemic responses by insulin delivery method. Adults (N=497) with T1D ([mean ± SD] age= 37 ± 14 years; HbA1C= 6.6 ± 0.8%) were assigned to complete six at-home sessions of aerobic, interval, or resistance exercise over 4 weeks, using study-developed instructional videos approximately 30 minutes in duration. Mean [95% CI] change in glucose during the assigned exercise was -[95% CI -22, -16], -15 [-18, -12], and -9 [-12, -7] mg/dL for aerobic, interval, and resistance exercise, respectively (P<0.001) , after adjusting for baseline glucose, insulin delivery modality, age, and sex. This pattern was similar irrespective of insulin delivery modality (Figure) .
In summary, regardless of insulin delivery modality, adults with T1D experienced the largest glucose drop for aerobic exercise followed by interval exercise and resistance exercise.
