The main purpose of this study was to find out how often low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) happens during the night after exercise in the late afternoon.   The study also looked at whether or not there are any factors that can predict if low blood sugar is going to develop. Blood samples were drawn to measure the blood sugar overnight and during exercise. Blood samples were also drawn to measure hormones to see how they are affected by exercise. Fifty subjects age 10 to 18 years were hospitalized in a research unit of a hospital for two days. During one of the two days (ordered through randomization), a structured exercise protocol was completed in the late afternoon. On the other day, the subjects did not exercise. The subjects’ meals and insulin doses were kept as similar as possible on both days.
