Jay Cutler Has To Stay Busy During Games- Checking His Sugar Levels

I came across this article, which is another Jay Cutler/ Diabetes piece, and there are some interesting tidbits of info:

Jay has had to drastically change his diet and takes insulin shots daily, but he said the hardest part is monitoring his blood sugar levels during games. He pricks his fingers 10 to 15 times to make sure his levels are ok.  

"Immediately after I come off from the first series of a game we check it (blood sugar levels) because that is when I am the most anxious and the most stressed. I usually drop 50 points in five minutes," Jay said. 

Cutler's parents also provide some insight, so make sure you check out the original story.
