BP Optimizer

by Francene Frayer (2020-08-17)

Type 2 diabetes and being an BP Optimizer athlete does work and does not deter from the ability of the athletes. Many world-famous athletes have had great careers with type 2 diabetes. For example, John Anderson who is an endurance cyclist competing in the Race Across America for the last five years, NFL quarterback Wade Wilson, tennis player Billie Jean King, hockey player Bobby Clarke, and heavyweight boxer Joe Frazier. Because exercise and hard core athletics lowers blood sugar dramatically, constant testing needs to occur at least once an hour while exercising to determine if the athlete needs another 15 grams of carbohydrates. The athlete doesn't need it while running around on the field but if blood sugars are too low a break to eat a granola bar is required. If blood sugars are high, the athlete can exercise for a lot longer but headaches occur and when exercising on a very high blood sugar, there is no energy and the athlete becomes lethargic. It's best to keep blood sugar in the range between 100-140 to keep the blood sugar going; not too high and definitely not too low. In athletes, high blood sugar is less dangerous than low because in a high blood sugar, exercising can stop and probably will due to fatigue. A low can throw the athlete into a coma. For an athlete the danger is more on the low end.
