[IPk] Napier University Research Study


my 15 year old with Type1 was recently invited to join a one-year
residential course at Napier for those who play rugby at district level in

Its likely he will do this course as a gap-year before University so very
interested to see they are doing studies with Type 1's on exercise and blood
glucose levels!

let us know how you get on!
