Frequently asked questions
Who should I tell about my T1D on my sports team?
It is important for you to have a network of people you trust to take care of you in case something happens, like a severe low blood sugar during a sporting event. You are not required to tell all the members of your sports team, but it is recommended that an adult supervisor is educated about diabetes basics. A coach or parent should be present and be able to recognize symptoms of a low blood sugar and what to do in case of diabetes emergencies.
