    Abstract

    Studies have found variability in self-care behaviors in patients with type 1 diabetes, particularly when incorporating exercise and alcohol consumption. The objective of this study was to provide results from a survey to understand (1) insulin pump behaviors, (2) reported self-management behaviors for exercise and alcohol, and (3) perceptions of the effects of exercise and alcohol on blood glucose (BG) control. Fourteen participants from an outpatient endocrinology practice were recruited and administered an electronic survey. Compensation techniques for exercise and alcohol, along with reasons for employing the techniques were identified. Also identified were factors that participants said affected BG control with regard to exercise and alcohol. These results confirm the considerable inconsistency patients have about incorporating exercise and alcohol into decisions about self-management behaviors.
