Athletes with Type 1 Diabetes

So over the weekend, my son wasn't feeling his Type 1 and just wanted it to go away. As a parent your heart aches but this is also when we must pick them up. He is a very athletic kid and loves football, basketball, all sports really... So we went to the internet and did a search for some accomplished athletes who also have Type 1. As we did our search, I noticed I was all over the place trying to bring everyone together and decided to take what I learned and put the most notiable ones in my blog for all to see & share. Enjoy :)


Please be sure to like our Facebook page to the right of or blog as well! Many thanks :)

Very cool!

Besides some of the famous people, there are lots of everyday athletes with type 1.  If your son runs into problems balancing athletics and blood sugar, I really like Sherri Colberg's book "The Diabetic Athlete."
