About ExCarbs

Our aim at is to help people with diabetes using insulin to feel comfortable with taking up exercise – our advice is not aimed at elite athletes but hopefully covers the basic rules for most people living with diabetes.


Remember that if exercise is sustained you will become much more sensitive to the effect of insulin and the dose needed will fall which is a really good result!
