But we had to completely change how meals were cooked. And yes, eventually, he had to change his habits too. But back then, they really didn't understand it like they do now.
Matter of fact, I think when he just got to high school or just before, they went from watching the sugar intake to monitoring the carb intake.
And then not long after that, is when he spiraled out of control in to drug and alcohol abuse. But he is still alive today.
But again, the major point here is it is a very manageable disease these days. For the Patriots to just up and fire him because of that, without first seeing how it would effect his life, is wrong on many levels.
Remember. Never goto the Library without your shotgun.
doesn't jay cutler have diabetes I thought? and he seems to be doing fine physically playing in the nfl. So apparently qbs are fine to play, but a guy whose not a qb and has diabetes, well too bad for him.
will the players union have anything to say about this?
is this leagal?
is he covered by Americans with Dissability Act
If you think managing type II diabetes is simply a matter of taking pills you are sadly mistaken my friend.
Pills only limit your own body (liver) from adding to your blood glucose level but they don't help remove glucose from the blood stream from an improper high carb diet. Those who don't excersize to lose weight and change their diet and take their meds will soon become a type I diabetic.
Believe me I know this first hand, was diagnosed with type II diabetes 6 yrs ago and have had live the type II diabetes life style. 4 yrs of a strict diet and a 60 lb weight loss I am now med free. Managing type II diabetes is way more than simply taking pills its a major change of life style.
