xXx diaBETES Ballers CLUB xXx

This club is for ballers with diabetes. I made this because i saw that there were actually quite a few people on PbN with diabetes. We can talk about whatever you want that has to do with diabetes or paintball... or diabetes mixed with paintball.

Information you should post:
*Type: (1 or 2)
*When you were diagnosed:
*How you found out:
*Tips on how to keep your sugar levels normal
*What you shoot:

and anything else that has to do with diabetes or paintball

type 1

diagnosed two years ago, when i was 14

drank a bunch of water, starting throwing up alot, etc, went to hospital

i drink gatorade in between games, keeps my sugars from dropping and they dont go high from all the exercise.. also check when you need to, dont be afraid to take a break when you start feelin low.

fully up'd ion, cant do anything else to it.. Saving my money for a new protege

*Type (1 or 2): Type 1
*When you were diagnosed: When I was 3 yrs old, going on 25yrs now with it
*How you found out: Thirsty all the time, frequent urination. Mom suspected something was wrong and took me to the Doctor.
*Tips on how to keep your sugar levels normal: Depends on the person honestly, I try to maintain a somewhat decent diet, I do not eat candy or anything with sugar, I'm always monitoring my blood sugars. I also am now using a pump, finally grew tired of 5-6 injections a day.

Glad to see there are others out there as well!

I am curious to know if anyone else out there is using the pump?
Have you tried playing while wearing it?
What have you found to be the best infusion location while playing?

I'm not on the pump, but I know a feel people that play with them on. They use the stomach for the site. Just make sure your pack is going to cover it. I think they put the pump in a sock or something padded, then throw it in their pants pocket.

Funny you ask that I just finshed taking to the Mini med (insulin pump company) rep and I have needed one for a few years and with insurance it still is $1100 bucks. I would not think about wearing it during play, especially if you slide and play hard, not worth the risk.

Just want to throw some support to those of you fighting with it too . Just another thing thats makes you stronger!
