Identification des difficultés de gestion rencontrées pendant le sport chez l'enfant diabétique de type 1 : à partir de l'observation des enfants diabétiques suivis au Centre Hospitalier de Pau

Abstract : Background: Physical activity is a point of type 1 diabetes mellitus management. We tried to identify management difficulties diabetic children may meet with exercise, so that diabetes doesn’t prevent them from training. We also wanted to set a relationship between physical activity and metabolic control. Methods : Questioning diabetic children followed in Pau hospital, France, about their exercise habits and watching preventive measures, complications, obstacles and sport management experience through a questionnaire fulfilled by these children and their parents. Children were divided in groups according to exercise frequency. The annual mean HbA1c was measured for each child. Results: 81 questionnaires were prepared and 70 could be analyzed. Preventive measures: Of 70 children, 57,4% have a parent attending exercise, 88,9% anticipate exercise with a change in food or treatment. 51,9% of coaches are trained for hypoglycemia management and 33,3% for glucagon use. Complications: 27,5% of children have met since diabetes was discovered at least one obstacle among sport refusal from coach, decreased performances or exercise cessation. Experience: 30% describe mild to important difficulties in managing diabetes during exercise. No relationship could be established between exercise and metabolic balance. Conclusion: Exercise management in diabetic children, although crucial, is not obvious. This work highlights the importance of supporting children and their relatives in understanding their disease.
