Incorporating Exercise Into a Busy Life

I would exercise if I had more time... if I had a health club membership... if it didn't hurt so much... if I knew what exercises to do... if I could do it with my family... if I could control my blood sugar...

Eating Like an Ironman

What do you eat in a 140 mile Ironman triathlon?  I get that question a lot. It's been said that the Ironman race is 10% fitness, and 90% nutrition. That's a bit of an exaggeration, but for those of us with diabetes, that's our daily life.  Nutrition affects everything we do. Exercise, sleep, driving a car, all of those activities require a person with diabetes to think about the carbohydrates they have consumed and when they will eat or drink them again

Children with Diabetes, You Are My True Inspiration

I was diagnosed with type 1 relatively late in life, at age 24.  People sometimes remark to me, with genuine kindness, that it must have been harder on me.  Perhaps they think I recall what it was like to be a "normal" child and young adult, to do and eat what I wanted without insulin, checking blood sugar, or worrying about highs and lows or long-term complications.  I appreciate their sincerity, but I always correct them.  Diabetes is not harder for me.  It is hard on everyone.  Whether you were diagnosed as a child or an adult, it complicates your life and the lives of your family.

It’s Not Too Late to Follow Your New Year’s Resolution

Remember that New Year's resolution that you made a few weeks ago?  Oh yeah, that one.  How's that going?  If you're like most people, you may have started to slack off just a little bit.  Or even worse, maybe it's already a distant memory.  No worries, I won't tell.  Let's get you going again.

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month
November is National Diabetes Awareness Month

November is National Diabetes Awareness month.  It's a good time to reflect on your blood glucose successes and have compassion for what you may view as failures.  What's in a glucose reading anyway?  It's just a number. It gives you feedback for a certain time period. Everyone struggles with maintaining good blood sugars.  The important thing to remember is that you are not alone. In this issue, you will find everyday heroes who are committed to reminding other people that we are all in this together. Since dialog is what it's all about when dealing with your diabetes, I am happy to tell you about a new section of our popular web site, Diabetes Health Forums. It's a place where you can participate in an existing discussion or start a new one of your own. Learn more at

Reaching the Finish Line
Reaching the Finish Line

As an Ironman triathlete with type 1, I get asked a lot of questions.

How do you control your blood sugar during a race?

What foods do you eat?
What products do you use?
How do you balance work, family, training, and diabetes?

Sometimes, people simply ask me if I am nuts.

Ironman Jay Hewitt
Ironman Jay Hewitt

He trains about 22 hours during the average week—not counting the additional seven hours of workouts on weekends. Through his twice-daily workouts, he totals nearly 120 miles of bicycling, about 10 miles of swimming and between 50 to 100 miles of running each week. For Ironman triathlete Jay Hewitt, training and diabetes have something in common: Working at them every day is critical to achieve his goals.
