Project Manager: Secondary data analysis of 65 adults with Type 1 diabetes examining personal history of hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia-associated cognitions and their associations with physical activity. ANOVA tests were employed to examine the association between participant questionnaire responses and outcome. Self-reported scores on the Exercise Benefits/Barriers Scale (EBBS) were associated with the Stanford Usual Activity Questionnaire (SUAQ) [R2 = 0.87, F = 3.99, df = 1,42 p = 0.042]. Entry of a 2nd block with the item “disliking sensations of physical activity” yielded no significant change in R2. Entry of a 2nd block item “difficulty distinguishing sensations of physical activity from low blood glucose” significantly increased R2 for SUAQ vigorous activity (p=0.049) and marginally increased R2 for SUAQ moderate activity (p=0.052). Noteworthy in this study was that less than 1/3 of all participants reported receiving physical activity instructions from their health care provider.
