Advice for Newly Diagnosed Sportswoman

Good evening.

Our daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes two weeks ago. Up to then, this 11 year old spent up to 6 hours a day on the tennis court in her quest to become a pro.

We are already discussing with her doctor the possibility on a insulin pump.

Any views and comments from other sport active people out there?
