This week, our friends at Team Novo Nordisk, the only professional cycling team comprised of riders with type 1 diabetes, completed their most successful season.

As many of you know, both myself and our publisher, Steve Freed, are avid cyclists and I am currently on track to hit 7,000 miles for the year. However, when I look at guys on TNN, I am amazed they can do all that with diabetes. The one thing that Steve and I have in common with them is that after all these years, we are still riding.
This is very important as many older people will discontinue physical activity as they age, and according to a feature prepared by our current Doctor of Pharmacy candidate, Clark Powell, this decrease of activity in older patients puts them at an increased risk of developing diabetes, and that is enough to make me get up at 6 am and climb on my bike.
