Elite cyclists show diabetes needn’t slow patients down
Twelve-year-old Sonoran Science Academy student Denise Ware first noticed the symptoms a month ago – trouble focusing, drinking a lot of fluid, nausea and vomiting. The diagnosis: Type 1 diabetes.
An avid basketball and volleyball player, Denise is currently sitting out of sports while she regulates her daily insulin injections. She was heartened Thursday when she met two members of an elite amateur cycling team that’s in Tucson to compete in Saturday’s 29th annual El Tour de Tucson.
