College Soccer Player with Type 1 Diabetes

Hi Everyone! I am a college soccer player at Marquette University, and am now a Senior on the team. I have been an athlete my entire life and pursued my dreams to play collegiate athletics, despite being diagnosed with Type 1 during track/soccer season at the age of 16 (the same week as Jay Cutler, to be exact)! I am looking to help and share ideas/management solutions with other diabetic athletes!

Please talk to your doctor about how to best take care of your diabetes. It is important that you eat properly and calculate your insulin dosage properly.
