    Tackling Diabetes Through Physical Activity

    Earlier this week one of the most powerful women in Britain, Theresa May confirmed that she has type I diabetes. The media was full of mischief suggesting that she may have to quit her role as Home Secretary but does she? This same media seem to forget that in his final year in the sport of rowing Sir Steve Redgrave was also diagnosed with diabetes and went on to win his FIFTH gold medal. Tottenham Hotspurs legend Gary Mabbut not only captained the team whilst taking daily injections, he played for England! So you don't have to stop all the things that you do!!

Many athletes found a reporter’s microphone pushed in front of them asking a mired of questions including this one. “Where do you think you can make improvements?” The answer that stuck out for me, the top of the improvement list was “I must improve my core”.
