When my daughter was first Dx the Endo stated she can do ANYTHING except be in the military or services, deep sea dive, and be an airline pilot. Anyone know of someone who is type 1 and can do these things?! heard there is a type 1 D athlete who participates in the IRONMAN Read about the firefighters fighting discrimination for type 1. My DH is a FF for the city. The dehydration factor gets most of the ff in trouble despite additional health concerns. The Firefighter gear or jackets alone make them lose water and electrolytes, not to mention the heat from the building, or being on the roof. Anyone hear that D can be more susceptible to dehydration? My DD just had her first VB tournament she took 1st place....the adrenaline really kicked up the BG for two days after the tournament. Endo concerned about her staying hydrated ok I am jumping subjects...curious about both!
