Athletes with Type 1 Diabetes face challenges that other athletes do not. In addition to thinking about making plays, we have to constantly think about what we can do to keep our blood sugar under control. Fortunately, there are some athletes with Type 1 that have reached the professional level and are some of the best at what they do. These athletes have proved that Diabetes can't stop them and are an inspiration to many.
The mission of Between the Lines is to help athletes with Type 1 Diabetes perform their best on and off the field by asking successful athletes how they manage their diabetes while playing their sport.
The goal is to succeed between the lines of the playing field and between the lines of the blood sugar chart.
