Blog Video: Diabetes And Football

This is a video looking at how diabetes affects the life of St Mirren goalkeeper Chris Smith. We were lucky enough to catch up with Chris during one of the League Cup finalists training sessions. In our interview Chris is very frank and tells us all the things he has to do that help ensure that his diabetes isn’t an issue during a game.

As a Diabetic myself this was of great interest. It is one of the fastest growing diseases in the world, especially in the UK. So it seems obvious that it would have an impact in sports like football. But the mainstream media seem to shy away from such topics, which is why my videos are helpful.
