Making Fantasy Football your Diabetes Reality


What do Tim Tebow, Tony Romo and diabetes have in common? It all comes together in the world of Mike Golic, the co-host of ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning. Mike Golic is a former defensive tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles¬† and Type 2 diabetic.

In order to assimilate Type 2 diabetes into his everyday routine, Mike found it easier to incorporate hard work and a game plan to achieve results. After all – this worked for him, time and time again, throughout his football career. He’s teamed up with Merck to enhance the Blood Sugar Basics program with a strategy of his own.

“The Game Plan is a four-step approach to getting you toward your goal line with Type 2 diabetes. If you are a super fan this is the program for you. The steps include:¬† the huddle, the nutrition zone, get into the game, and check the scoreboard. Each step embodies what needs to be done to keep you on top of your game: setting goals, nutrition, exercise, and assessing progress.

You may not have played ball under the Friday Night Lights or won a Heisman Trophy but that does not disqualify you from getting coached by a team of qualified professionals and recruiting a few home team members for your defensive line, like Mike gets from his phenomenal son.
