«“In The Athlete’s Guide to Diabetes Sheri Colberg provides a wealth of information and guidance about exercise and diabetes—not just for elite athletes but for anyone living with diabetes who is involved in sports. Sheri includes advice about insulin (including the newer biosimilars), CGMs, pumps (including hybrid closed loops), other diabetes medications, and better food choices for exercise, including good options for snacks and hypoglycemia treatment. Furthermore, Sheri includes personal accounts from several athletes, with tips and tricks that have helped them be successful. The Athlete's Guide to Diabetes is a must-have for everyone with diabetes who takes exercise and sports seriously.”
—Jeff Hitchcock, President of Children With Diabetes

“Exercise is the billion-dollar drug that rarely gets prescribed. The Athlete’s Guide to Diabetes provides people with diabetes with the knowledge and tools to exercise safely and successfully. This book will serve as a priceless tool for anyone with diabetes. Thanks to Sheri for all her great work and helping get people with diabetes more active!”
—Phil Southerland, CEO and Cofounder of Team Novo Nordisk, President and Founder of Team Type 1 Foundation
