Diabetic wrestlers...

i was always wondering if there were any diabetic wrestlers in the WWE, if so, how do they manage their sugar counts and know when their sugar drops low during a match.


the reason i am asking because my Girlfriend is Type 1 diabetic, and her sugars are wacked out, sometimes real high or real low.


how would a WWE performer manage to check their levels in the middle of a match?

Re: Diabetic wrestlers...

As long as there blood sugar levels are monitored before the match and there Diabeties is being managed healthily they shouldn't have a problem in any average length - even longer matches.

Re: Diabetic wrestlers...

Hell, if Bobby Clark could win Stanley Cups as a diabetic, I'm sure a diabetic could work a match.

And when you think about it, many people are diabetic or on there way to it, they just don't realize it.

Back in the day it seemed every other wrestler was a big guy, 250+ pounds, and not this gear-and-HGH-and-whatever-else chiseled look. Fat!

Re: Diabetic wrestlers...

I think it could be cool if a diabetic WWe star would speak out on research and what not...like a spokesman.

I think Jamal/Umaga was diabetic...I can't remember if they mentioned that during his death or not.

Re: Diabetic wrestlers...

I heard Bam Bam Bigelow was diabetic, though I could be wrong.

Re: Diabetic wrestlers...

I think the bigger issue could be in a blading era and the tendency of a diabetic not to heal as quickly. Depending on the severity of the condition it could be very manageable. Very seldom is one person's diabetes the exact same as someone else's.

Re: Diabetic wrestlers...

I just got an image of a wrestler rolling out of the ring during a match to check his blood sugar. I would laugh my ass off if I saw that in real life.
