This is a 2 stage study:
1) we will first examine barriers to exercise in adults newly diagnosed with T1D
2) we will then examine whether exercise preserves beta cell function in adults newly diagnosed with T1D. This will be a randomised study where people will be asked to undertake at least the nationally recommended levels of exercise for 1 year, and the amount of beta cells measured at the end.
The barriers to exercise identified in the first part of this study will be used to facilitate the second part of the study.
