Abstract

Physical activity (PA) is an important recommendation for type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients. However, it is commonly thought that higher intensities result in elevating the risk of hypoglycemia immediately after physical activity. We present a case report of a diabetes patient whose blood glucose levels dropped more immediately after low-level aerobic intensity yoga exercises compared with the level drop immediately after high-level aerobic intensity bicycling exercises. The results suggest that due to the difficulty in predicting the glycemic response to physical exercise it is important to better prepare T1DM patients when prescribing them with PA.
