Racing with diabetes

Team Novo Nordisk athletes actively manage their diabetes while training and racing at the top level. The athletes must continually monitor their blood sugar levels and make adjustments to their food and medication, while working closely with their health care teams. Everyone is different, so it’s important to work with your health care team to find the plan that works best for you.

Winning as a community

In addition to participating in athletic competitions, Team Novo Nordisk is very active in the diabetes community. By sharing their stories with others, the athletes hope to inspire people around the world who are affected by diabetes to pursue their dreams.
