Insulin: Insulin is necessary for type 1 diabetes. It can be administered through injections or through a pump that is connected at all times. Exercise can decrease the amount of Insulin needed. When first starting an exercise program, low blood sugar can occur so it is important to be careful and test blood sugar often.
