As many people know Jay Cutler has diabetes, he was diagnosed in 2008 when he was a member of the Denver Broncos. After two years of waiting for Cutler to make diabetes known nationally, I gave up on him and became very angry that an athlete at his level wasn't doing more for a disease that he has. Everyone is different I know this, it took me 20 years to accept my disease and maybe cutler is in the same boat that I was for so long. Jay Cutler has a foundation for diabetes, http://jaycutlersix.com/. This is great to see but I would love to see more nationally from cutler. I don't live in Chicago so I don't know how much work Cutler does for diabetes in Chicago but a search on Google didn't give any results that showed him giving back to the diabetes community. Again maybe I'm missing something and if I am please share the link with me that shows cutler giving back to the diabetes community.
The second part of my rant is a me reaching out to jay cutler, I'm worried about him as a diabetic. With one of the most potent offenses in football how has he been putting up such bad numbers, mainly since he was diagnosed with diabetes. I understand he has doctors on the sideline that makes sure he is playing to the best of his ability with diabetes but he is he really? We all know how much high and low blood sugars effect the mind, I believe his blood sugar is to high while playing. I have nothing to back this up but his interceptions and his decision making during the game. Something seems off with him and I'm worried it's his diabetes. I would love to hear from other football players with diabetes, am I on to something or am I looking to far in to this. I wish Cutler the best as a diabetic and I really hope he not only is taking care of himself but helping others that live with diabetes.
