Christensen Family Diabetes Sports Medicine Program
Children and teens with Type 1 diabetes often can experience drastic changes in blood sugar levels during activity and exercise. That can affect a child’s safety and performance, especially when playing sports. The Christensen Family Diabetes Sports Medicine Program at the Wendy Novak Diabetes Center provides clinical care to individuals and their families through patient-centered and community education as well as clinical research. Regardless of sport or activity, our care is focused on improving the health, safety and athletic performance of every child and young adult with diabetes.
