Foredraget i videoen er på engelsk, og derfor er nedenstående beskrivelse også på engelsk.

EXTOD Study

Parth Narendran qualified from Kings College London and undertook his post-graduate clinical training in Manchester, Bristol and London. He conducted his PhD studies on the immune mechanisms underlying the development of type 1 diabetes whilst at Bristol. He was subsequently awarded a JDRF post-doctoral fellowship in Melbourne, Australia. He took up his current post at the University of Birmingham in 2005.

Research area
Parth’s clinical interests focus on type 1 diabetes and he leads the type 1 services at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. These include a structured education programme called Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating (DAFNE), the adolescent transition and insulin pump (including intra-peritoneal insulin pump), and islet/pancreas transplant services. Supporting patients to exercise is a core interest of the service.
Parth’s research interests also focus on type 1 diabetes. He has a long-standing interest in preserving the function of insulin producing pancreatic beta cells in type 1 diabetes. Over the years he has been fortunate to receive funding from Diabetes UK, JDRF, DRWF, Wellcome Trust, MRC, The Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust as well as the National Institute for Health Research.

About this presentation
This presentation will discuss the barriers and benefits to exercise in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D). It will outline the early EXTOD trials to explore if exercise preserves beta cell function in new onset T1D.
It will also outline approaches to reducing barriers to exercise in T1D, including the design and testing of an education programme to support people with T1D to exercise.
