This email is for the IDF event in Brussels 13 Nov! IDF stands for International Diabetes Foundation
I have always been sporty and I dont wanted diabetes typ 1 to stop me from continue to race when I was diagnozed May 2010 , 36 years old. I compete in longdistance running, road cycling, open water swimming and cross country skiing and I swim between Denmark and Sweden 5000-7000 across the strait of Öresund. I did an Ironman 15 months after I was diagnozed( swim 3850 meter, road bike 180 km and run a marathon, all in one day without breaks) . I did this on MDI (multi daily injections) and 20 blood suger checks with my monitor. A year ago my life change since I was introduced to CGM. In March I did a 450 km skiing event though Finland http://rajaltarajallehiihto.ranua.fi/In-english/RR-info . In June and July I did a swimrun race www.amfibiemannen.se and in September I did a road bike event from Brussels to Barcelona 2000 km long http://www.mhealthtour.com/. All four event got one thing in common- I WOULD NEVER DARE TO DO IT WITHOUT A GCM AND ANMIAS VIBE INSULIN PUMP. The cgm indicated the whole time where my blood suger is going which is essential to know when you train for 6-13 hours a day, day after day.
