Abstract OBJECTIVE - To compare the aerobic exercise capacity and pulmonary function between athletes with and without type 1 diabetesRESEARCH DESIGN and METHODS - Fifty-one adult age-matched individuals were assessed in random order to the maximum volume of O(2) consumption (Vo(2 peak max)) (ml/kg/mm) anaerobic threshold (ml/kg/min) peak pulmonary ventilation (V(E)) heart rate (beats per mm) time to exhaustion (mm) forced vital capacity (FEV) (%) forced expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1) (%) total lung capacity (TLC) (%) and lung diffusion capacity for carbon monoxide (DL(CO)) (%) Individuals were 27 with type 1 diabetes 15 athletes (ADM) and 12 nonathletes (NADM) and 24 healthy individuals 12 ADM and 12 NADM Duration of diabetes was 14 6 +/- 6 2 and 15 2 +/- 6 7 years in ADM and NADM respectivelyRESULTS - Vo(2peal max) was higher in ADM than in NADM (P < 0 001) the anaerobic threshold was lower in subjects with type I diabetes than in control subjects (P < 0 001) FEV1 was lower m ADM than in other groups (NADM athletes control and nonathletes control P < 0 001)CONCLUSIONS - Aerobic capacity in subjects with type 1 diabetes with programmed exercise is similar to the capacity of normal athletes despite lower anaerobic threshold and FEV1
