Exercise is regarded as a potential strategy to assist in the management of blood glucose in people with type 1 diabetes. However, currently there is little evidence-based information detailing the acute effects weight training has on glycaemia in type 1 diabetes. The aim of this review is to identify studies investigating the acute effects of weight training on blood glucose levels in type 1 diabetes. A search of Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Cochrane, Medline and SPORTDiscus databases was conducted. A systematic review of these studies was undertaken to address the issue. After fulfilling the inclusion criteria, eight articles were retrieved. The individual studies reported comparatively different results.
