Eating Like an Ironman
Apr 30, 2009 | 
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
Mar 4, 2009 | 
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.
