I was 11 years old when I was diagnosed. I’m a competitive figure skater who spends up to 15 hours per week in both on and off ice training, and I can’t let type 1 get in my way. Despite the difficulties a low blood sugar can bring in the midst of a competition or a tough work out, I can power through by correcting it with some glucose and getting on with my day.
