A new interview in Diabetic Health magazine provides a positive message to diabetics across the globe. The interview focuses around a young diabetic called Scott Dunto, who is also one of the best surfers in the world. He is rated 220th on the WQS, the world qualifying series. The WQS is the proving ground for the exclusive ASP top 44, the big league of surfing competition.
Scott Dunton is a 20 year old California, who has been a surfer since age 5 and a diagnosed diabetic since age 16. His surfing travels have taken him all over the globe. He also enjoys other active sports, such as water polo, wakeboarding and kayaking.
Scott, who fought against negative early reactions to his disease, was inspired when he found out that no professional surfers suffered from the disease. Scott regulates his blood sugar with an insulin pump, and finds it to be essential in combining his disease with his passion and profession. The pump allows Scott the freedom to eat at random, and manage his diabetes whilst surfing at least twice a day.
Scott has begun to give talks to groups of diabetics, and aims to act as an inspiration to as many sufferers as possible to follow their dreams and passions.
