    More a question for discussion rather than a comment – “The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone: many people all over the country have type 1 diabetes and there is a wealth of resources on hand to give you support.”: do we want to direct people specifically to ExCarbs and RunSweet or is that confusing given that they have just done this course?

    Personally, I like runsweet because there are lots of patient stories on there. ExCarbs pretty much reinforces what we have said, although I see they advise pump users to keep their basal rate reduced for an hour after exercise whereas EXTOD say to go back to normal basal rate immediately.

    Should we be including content on closed loop systems? Feel like this will need added at some point
