A Type 1 Diabetic Leads The Way With CrossFit Overcome
As a lifelong Type 1 Diabetic Eric Pelletier believes that no matter what your limitations may be, "History Is Not Destiny".
At 28 days old Eric was admitted to Childrens Hospital in Chesapeake, Virginia. Neither the doctors or his parents knew what was happening or what to do with their newborn. Dr Rueben Rohn was the doctor who was taking care of Eric and during treatment found out what exactly it was that had brought him in. Since that day, he has been taking Insulin injections daily, testing blood glucose levels and monitoring his diet under the direct guidance of his acting physicians. The problem with this is that his physicians have been wrong all this time.
Type 1 Diabetes is an Autoimmune disorder in which the Pancreas no longer makes any Insulin, or negligible amounts. To replace this loss of Insulin, the person with Type 1 Diabetes has to take Insulin injections. Insulin is well known to be the hormone most responsible for fat accumulation, blood sugar maintenance and inflammation. The maintenance cure for Type 1 Diabetes and nearly every other disease and disorder is a CrossFit styled nutrition program and fitness program.
