[IPk] London marathon / Tomorrow's World

We actually had 9 diabetic runners wearing sensors during the marathon and 3 control runners [ non - diabetic ]

Most of the diabetic runners avoided hypos by starting the race very high [ around 20 mmol / l ] and then they steadily fell throughout the race , topping up with juices , dextrose as they ran .
 We also monitored the recovery period post race and didn't have too many hypos which was surprising , mainly due to the continued intake of juices and glucose supplements throughout the evening post marathon .

It was a great experience and the sensors generally performed  well under these strenous conditions although one did fall out amongst the tape , sweat etc . after approx. 15 miles .
The others all stayed in and recorded the data .

The plan is to use this data and other sensor / exercise studies to help generate some user friendly guidelines for exercise .
