As technology is evolving very fast the use of different technologies during exercise are discussed in the guideline.
Initially the reader will find a section about general precautions prior to an exercise session where ketones and hypoglycemia are discussed in detail. Also in the guideline a practical figure illustrates how to act when different levels of blood ketones are detected prior to exercise. Additionally the guideline gives summary recommendations for avoiding hypoglycaemia in physically active young people with type 1 diabetes.
The reader will find more practical advice compared with previous guidelines. This include general precautions prior to each exercise session, differences in glucose response depending on the type of exercise, carbohydrates before, during and after exercise. 
Moreover, in the guideline the reader will find specific practical advice on what to do depending on if the individual is getting started with exercise, having normal day-to-day exercise or is training and competing. This is also followed by a section about recommended glucose levels at start of exercise and strategies for glucose management.
As exercise provides so many benefits this is a “must read” chapter!
