I'm a high school wrestling coach with a sophomore wrestler who is an insulin dependent diabetic. He is under his physicians care and monitors and injects himself. The question is, are there others in this demanding sport that he could look to for inspiration and advice? He will look outstanding some meets and sluggish others. Any help you could give us or places you could send us for info would be appreciated.
