4 Things You Should Know if You’re an Athlete with Diabetes

Do people with Type 1 diabetes exercise more than the general population?  No way to know for sure, but sometimes it seems that way. Because we must pay strict attention to our bodies 24-7, T1s tend to invest abundant time and energy into our overall health, and exercise is the No. 2 way that we do that. (No. 1, of course, is making the right food choices.)

Moreover, recent advances in the treatment of Type 1 diabetes mean that we can perform on the same stages (and in the same pools, fields, arenas, stadiums and tracks) as people without diabetes.  That’s why we have notable T1 athletes such as Olympic swimmer Gary Hall Jr., weightlifter Doug Burns, marathoner Missy Foy, … Read more...

Does Diabetes Group Education Result in Better Self Care?

They say there’s safety in numbers, and now it turns out, there’s better diabetes care in numbers, too.

A new study out of Canada suggests that people with diabetes do better when they participate in group discussions rather than learning about diabetes management on their own.

As reported in Medscape, a news service for medical professionals affiliated with WebMD, researchers in Ontario studied 75,000 patients and found better outcomes among those with access to diabetes group education.

“Compared with those attending individual counseling, patients who went to group classes were less likely to visit the emergency room, to be hospitalized for hypo- or hyperglycemia, or develop foot ulcers and cellulitis,” the article by Lisa Nainggolan said.

Interestingly, the research team … Read more...
