How Does Diabetes Affect An Athlete’s Sports Performance?

Most of us tend to think that athletes are mostly healthy and
fit, but the reality is that there are a few popular athletes
die of modern diseases such and heart disorder and brain tumor
at relatively young age. Although we tend to think that they
are too young to have diseases such as diabetes, but the fact
is that most of them do not really know that they are having
hidden symptoms of hyperglycemia (high blood glucose level),
not until something goes wrong.

When athletes are in the training camp, their diet is strictly
regulated by the nutritionist or coaches. The standard meals of
athlete are fixed and boring. They are not allowed to eat
something other than the well calculated diet fixed by the
nutritionist. The problem with athlete diet is that, they are
designed and thought to be good for the sport, but is that good
for long term healthcare?

For example, some sport nutritionist like to suggest the
athletes to consume more protein based diet with the reason
that protein is good for muscle building or cell repair. Some
athlete will misinterpret the message and think that eating
like a carnivore will make them run like a tiger or leopard and
some even thought that green vegetables or fruits are for
losers because carnivores always run faster than the
herbivores. This misconception cultivates a very imbalance diet
habit among some athletes, some even to the extent of only
eating meaty foods.

Human physiology is very different from those of the animals.
Look at your teeth! Is your teeth structure more similar to
carnivore or herbivore? Our digestive system is more similar to
those of plant eating animals. Our body cannot digest protein
as well as those carnivores.

The problem with too much of protein is that it will slowly
turn your body become acidic which will eventually leads to
modern disease such as gout, diabetes, hypertension, and even
cancer. Let take diabetes as an example and how it affects an
athlete sports performance.

Diabetes is a condition where the body cells cannot effectively
make use of the glucose in the blood to produce energy or
storage. This is due to the lack of insulin (Type I) or Insulin
Resistance (Type II). In another words, the inability of the
body to make good use of the glucose to turn it into energy
will greatly reduce your body ability to perform continuous
physical activity such as running.

If you force your body to run, the muscles will ‘rob’ the
glucose and oxygen from other parts of the body and this will
result in sudden faint or collapse when there is not enough
‘fuel’ to support the brain & heart operation.

You may not experience that kind of situation if you are a
sprinter, but if you are marathon runner with diabetes, I
strongly suggest you to stop that sport or at least standby
some glucose syrups or sweet when you are running.

But the long term solution is still to find out how to clear
the root of the problem. First of all, you must find out which
Type of Diabetes you are having. If it is Type 1 Diabetes, I’m
sorry to tell you there is no permanent cure to it. But if it
is Type 2 Diabetes, there is way to reverse the Insulin
Resistance.
