"I’ve only ever wanted to be a pro cyclist. And just because I have diabetes doesn’t mean I had to give up." David Lozano Team Novo Nordisk Pro Team Cyclist
The Team Novo Nordisk mission is to inspire, educate and empower people affected by diabetes.
When diagnosed with diabetes, many people think it means they won’t be able to live life the way they’d hoped. Team Novo Nordisk hopes to show the world what may be possible with diabetes.
I'm a passionate fan of Team Novo Nordisk because they are changing what people think when they hear the word diabetes. For far to long I heard that I couldn't do something because of diabetes, when Team Novo Nordisk was formed that changed everything for myself and many others living with diabetes. It gave me confidence, the team has shown me that anything is possible. I may have diabetes but that doesn't mean I can't be in the front of the pack or win races. It doesn't mean that a child can't play soccer or tee ball. Anything is possible with diabetes, a child with diabetes can be lawyer, doctor or teacher just like his or her classmate that is not living with diabetes.
Team Novo Nordisk is a very positive influence in the world of diabetes. Not once have I seen a post by the team or a team member that is negative!! For far to long to many people living with diabetes have bad mouthed the disease or their blood sugars. Just like life or a bike race you can focus on the good or the bad. Team Novo Nordisk has taught me and so many to focus on the good, before a race last night my blood sugar was at 263. I could have sat down and said I'm not going to race because my blood sugar is to high, I would have been depressed the rest of the night and upset with my diabetes. Instead I decided to take .4 units of insulin and go for a ten minute warmup run. I felt great as the race began and I would go on to finish with my fastest 5k time of the season. However it was the blood sugar of 149 ten minutes after the race that made my night. That blood sugar showed me that I'm in control of my diabetes. Before Team Novo Nordisk I would have never had the confidence to run with a higher than normal blood sugar.
Team Novo Nordisk is the king of the cycling social media world. The story at CyclingQuotes.com proves that but what does that mean? That means that day in and day out Team Novo nordisk is showing what is possible via social media. From photos of racers pre, during and post race to articles about diabetes mangement the Team Novo Nordisk, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites are the best way to know everything about Team Novo Nordisk.
I can't thank Team Novo Nordisk and Novo Nordisk for what they have done for the world of diabetes. They have saved my life and made me love diabetes. The sky is the limit for Team Novo Nordisk and the sky is the limit for anyone living with diabetes. We are one, we are a team that is changing the diabetes world each and everyday!!
