The World's First All-Diabetic Professional Athlete Team!

>> Thursday, July 18, 2013

Here's an inspirational story to make you smile today: The recent BC Superweek's cycling race included an all diabetic racing team!

Anyone who lives with diabetes or cares for people with diabetes knows that managing diabetes in the context of exercise can be a challenge.  Managing diabetes in the context of a gruelling multi-day race is nothing short of impressive and admirable.

The attitude of this go-get-em team reflects exactly how we guide and teach our patients with diabetes:  to learn adapt their diabetes medications to fit their lifestyle, rather than have to change or restrict their lifestyle to fit their diabetes medications or insulin regimen.   Learning how to adjust certain diabetes medications or insulin doses to fit differences in activity levels and eating patterns from day to day can be a very freeing and satisfying experience!
