Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My sons, ages 16 and 23, have type 1. Both want to participate in open water diving, but the endocrinologist will not sign off that my younger son can do this. What could we do? I do not want them to feel "disabled" by diabetes by not allowing them to do this.
