ALEXANDRIA, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- Behind every great athlete is a team of coaches and trainers set on preparing him or her for competition. And behind every great athlete with diabetes is a medical team whose goal it is to keep blood glucose levels in line. That is certainly true for NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Ryan Reed, who has lived with type 1 diabetes since age 17. The July 2014 issue of Diabetes Forecast®, the Healthy Living Magazine of the American Diabetes Association, profiles this up-and-coming driver, who is also an ambassador for the Association's Drive to Stop Diabetes awareness campaign with Lilly Diabetes.
Initially told he would never race again, Reed, who is now 20, refused to let diabetes sidetrack his professional career before it had even begun. In Wheel Man, the magazine tells the story of how he and his endocrinologist developed a game plan to get him back on the track. The article is a fascinating look at all the factors that can impact Reed's diabetes management -- including his adrenaline response, the high temperatures inside the car and even the size of the track -- and what it takes to maintain near-normal blood glucose at speeds upward of 100 mph. With each race and his many other advocacy efforts, Reed raises awareness of the disease and illustrates all that can be achieved while living with diabetes.
Also in the July 2014 issue of Diabetes Forecast:
- What to know about sharps disposal safety -- plus how to make your own storage container.
- 10 ways to avoid severe hypoglycemia.
- Easy-to-make sauce recipes for ketchup, salsa and more.
- How a rosy outlook on life can improve your health.
- Eight diabetes advocates who are making a difference.
Diabetes Forecast has been America's leading diabetes magazine for more than 65 years, offering the latest news on diabetes research and treatment to provide information, inspiration and support to people with diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight to Stop Diabetes® and its deadly consequences and fighting for those affected by diabetes. The Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Founded in 1940, our mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
