The 2016 professional cycling season has started, and this week Team NovoNordisk is competing in the Tour of Dubai. This race brings together professional cycling teams from all over the world and many of the top riders, including 4 former Tour de France winners. As you know, all the TNN riders have type 1 diabetes. Through the first 3 stages the team has 3 riders in the top 50, and a couple of them are only a little more than 5 minutes out of the lead after 320 miles of riding. We will have updated results for you next week and some feedback from some of the riders.

While these professional riders are in fantastic condition and  increase their endurance levels with interval trainings, most of our patients struggle just to get in some physical activity to help manage their diabetes. This week, Dr. Sheri Colberg has a special feature on using interval training, and whether that will actually help our patients to weight loss and better glucose control.
