Professional Athletes Living with Diabetes

Posted Dec 29 2008 6:35pm

The recent type 1 diabetes diagnosis of NFL Bronco’s quarterback, Jay Cutler, has sparked much awareness to the number of professional athletes who are also living with the disease.  Like all people with type 1 diabetes, these athletes must consistently monitor diet, exercise and insulin levels to be able to play and compete safely.  Isn’t it encouraging to know that such a life-altering disease doesn’t have to stop our youth from living out their dreams? To learn more about Cutler or other athletes living with diabetes check out the following articles at www. nfl.com and www.thedenverchannel.com.  For more information on warning signs, prevention and care of diabetes visit www.Diabetes.orgKEEP MOVING! -Elizabeth CPT.
