One of the drivers who finished in the top 10 in this year's Indy 500 was diabetic. The announcer said that his pit crew kept track of his BG and kept it in the 200s. How did they do that? I understand they gave injetions by a flexpen insulin device giving the injection through his drivers suit. How did they keep constant monitoring his BG? Or did they?
I try to keep my BG between 120 and 150 while on long drives. Easy for me to stop and make a test and constantly eat a few M&Ms from time to time, but I don't think a race driver could do that.
How was his diabetes controlled during the race?
