The VIGOR Study
The VIGOR Study as a whole seeks to determine the appropriate intensity of exercise needed to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in person living with type 1 diabetes. It is composed of three separate studies: (1) VIGOR Acute Sedentary – is a short term 16 day study for sedentary individuals comparing the effects of three exercise intensities (70%, 80%, and 90% of heart rate reserve) on the prevention of nocturnal hypoglycemia, (2) VIGOR Acute Trained – is a short term 6 day study for endurance trained individuals assessing the impact of two varying intensities (80% and 90% of heart rate reserve) of exercise on the prevention of nocturnal hypoglycemia, and (3) VIGOR Trial – a 16 week randomized controlled trial for sedentary individuals looking at the long term effects of interval training on hypoglycemia.
