    Hey all,

    My first post here! I'm a T1 of nine years and I've been climbing for four years. I want to share this because it's given me total control over my diabetes. Much like any other sport, it's a commitment, but it's taken me to an incredible point in my life, where diabetes never has control, despite me being insulin dependent. I wanted to see if anyone else has found this and I want to spread word to all others!

    Wishing you all well and brilliant blood sugars!
    Liam

    Hello and welcome to the forum :-D Can you tell us more about your climbing and how you manage your bs levels under control. It’s always encouraging to hear how we can stay in control of T1. I exercise but not enough ...
