Subject: [IPp] Type 1 Diabetes: An Amazing Race

As some of you may recall, the first female team & person with Type 1
Diabetes won the Amazing Race:

After reading the article about the amazing Strand in Diabetes Forcast, this
particular paragraph from her MD friend really struck me: *Other teams
would be asleep for eight hours straight, and her insulin pump would be
beeping every hoursometimes every 10 minutesand we just wouldnt get a
full nights sleep, recalls Chang. Even as a fellow doctor, she says she
had no idea how all-consuming diabetes management was until she lived it,
right alongside her best friend: Being with her 24-7 for an entire month
straight was really enlightening, Chang says. I definitely have a new
respect and understanding for diabetesthat it is just so, so, so difficult
to manage, and it is absolutely 24-7.*


This was stated by her MD friend Chang who competed on Strand's team on the
Amazing Race show. This woman is a DOCTOR and had no idea about how
involving Type 1 Diabetes is in our daily lives.

If that doesn't say it all about Type 1 Diabetes, I don't know what does....
