Top-notch website about diabetes and sports of all descriptions, mostly UK-based so far as I can work out, but still worth a look for those of you the other side of the pond: www.runsweet.com. Any other similar sites out there?
I became a member of that site last evening, in hopes I could then find the email address of one of the authors on a topic of interest. The author had made serious factual mistakes in her presentation on the topic. Very small website but hopefully it will grow.
hey andy i agree with you- total shame about the total lack of info for athletic diabetics.
I think most endocrinologists deal with the type of patients who wont eat right, take their shots, and hate exercising. And they dont seem to consider how (or are trained) to help those who want to do more than just "survive" diabetes.
I just picked up the book "diabetic athlete's handbook" and i'm hoping it will be a huge help. have you read it yet?
Do you know any other good resources?
well i guess that's why we have tudiabetes! i wish we could have a really good educator on here to answer our questions and he/she could monitor our discussions. i'm sure that would turn into a whole legal mess :)
let me know what you think of the book
