I was listening to SAFM yesterday and heard the interview with your editor and felt like I had to send this email.
I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 6 years now and can honestly say that my life since diagnosis has just got even better.
I have always had sport at the centre of my life and competed at various levels and was devastated when diagnosed and was sure that I could never compete in endurance sport again.
I have over the last 6 years through trial and error devised a plan to compete again. I have again competed in all my endurance events that I previously loved.
I have recently got involved in educating the young diabetics about how important sport is in their life to maintaining good glucose levels.
It would be nice for your magazine to include articles and advice for sportsmen and women that continue to live healthy lifestyles with diabetes.
I have just signed up to your magazine and am really looking forward to reading it!
Diabetes is a condition given to those that need to learn everything there is to know mentally and physically about what the human body can actually do!!!!!!
