INDIANAPOLIS — In this video exclusive, Endocrine Today Diabetes in Real Life columnist Susan Weiner, MS, RDN, CDE, CDN, talks with snowboarder Sean Busby, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes while training for the U.S. Olympics team. Busby is founder of Riding on Insulin, an action sports camp for kids, teens and adults with type 1 diabetes.

Activities through Riding on Insulin include skiing, snowboarding and mountain biking with racing and endurance events. The experience helps parents and kids let go of some of their fears about diabetes and live a normal life, Busby said.
