N.J. Assembly panel passes bill allowing driver's licenses to include diabetic condition

Started this discussion. Last reply by Stemwinder (Gary) Jan 24, 2013. 4 Replies

"Well, I just had no idea. It is life-sustaining for me (and for you and other PWDs), so the idea of using it for anything other than that is reprehensible to my way of thinking. Thanks guys (you know who you are) for screwing it up for the rest of…"

"When Michael Rasmussen finally admitted to doping during his where-abouts violation that got him thrown out of the tour while leading it was actually for insluin. Though I think he was using it for the anabolic affect to build lean muscle. Team Type…"

"Pros were using it to ingest large amounts of carbs in a very short period of time as part of recovery process after racing...so it was banned. But yes, it does seem silly for someone with a diabetes diagnosis to have to get one. We're never…"

Michael McClure replied to ajbaum's discussion 'TUE?' in the group Cycling Diabetics
""Yes, it's a banned substance." What asshat, pray tell, thought THAT was a good idea??! *_* Ridiculous. I never knew that Team Type 1 had to get TUEs for their insulin when they were racing in the ToC. Crazy. Just stop taking it, you…"

Bradford replied to ajbaum's discussion 'TUE?' in the group Cycling Diabetics
"Yes, it's a banned substance. I have a TUE, although I've never had to use it. I think if you got back into racing and were mopping up the competition winning podium after podium, it would only be a matter of time before you'd need…"

TUE?

For the competitive riders out there...I'm finding some time to get back on the bike and thinking of renewing my USAC license and jumping into some local races for the first time since being diagnosed as a Type 1. I know that USADA doesn't require a TUE for insulin PRIOR to competition for non-national athletes. However wondering if it's worth it to get one ahead of time rather than deal with providing the documentation after the fact on the very small chance I'd actually be tested... What do…See More

"Registered for the OC Marathon 5/4/14. I am not going to get a marathon a month in this year. But I did do a century ride, the Ship to Shore Tour de Cure, in April, so that's something. And I can still get 12 done this year by doing two in…"

"X3 is "only" 30 minutes but you do stuff like one workout that goes back and forth between pushups and pullups for 1/2 hour. It will smoke your arms. Some of the other ones are interesting, cardio stuff with weights, like squats, lunges,…"
