Dutch prospect Jordy Kuiper, "Diabetes doesn't have to mean you can't chase and live your dreams" - Jul 12, 2012


POSTED BY:

I had a change to talk with Dutch prospect 17-year-old Jordy Kuiper, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 9. One of his biggest fears was not being able to play the sport he loved which was basketball.
Thanks to a supportive health care team, Jordy was not only able to play basketball again but just signed a one-year contract at the Canarias Basketball Academy in Spain.
Jordy is ambassador of the Bas van der Goor foundation, a foundation with the mission to enhance the quality of life for people with diabetes through exercise and sport.
Below is an interview with Jordy Kuiper.a

When diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 9 what were your first thoughts?
The first thing I asked the doctor was: 'Can I still play basketball?' And the doctor said yes, but he made clear that I would need good Self-discipline so I could keep doing what I loved to do. (Playing Basketball)

What insulin regimen did you use early in the beginning and what do you use now?
From the beginning I have been using an injection needle to manually inject the insuline that my body needs. I'm going to test out an Insulin pump very soon, so that maybe it can give me more stable BG's and better performances. But it's difficult to say if it will be that much of an difference. I just have to see for myself when I'm trying it out.

How many times a day did you test on game days versus other days?
Because my BG needs to be extra good on gamedays, I'll have to make a lot of extra checks to see that I'm still balanced. Some might think all the extra testing is annoying, but it gives me a lot of security that I'm ready to give 100%.

Jordy, what is the most challenging part of diabetes when you play basketball?
It has gotta be maintaining a good bloodsugar. Diabetes isn't an hobby. It's part of your life 24/7 so you have to be ready all the time to act where necessary.

What BG number did you strive for before practice?
A 'normal person' has a BG between 4 and 8 in Holland. (Some countries use different systems to calculate these values) During intense training sessions my BG can drop
instantly, so I have to make sure I always bring some type of sportsdrink with me to (if necessary) give me an extra sugar boost. Personally I like to start a Game or practice with a BG around 12 or 13.

Did you ever have to come out of a game due to a low blood sugar?
I can always feel a low bloodsugar coming, so I always try to prevent them from happening. If I do have an Hypo (Low bloodsugar) I can just take some sportsdrink and I'm ready to go again!

Did stress prior to or during a game cause your BG to go high?
Yes, stress can definitely cause my BG to raise before games. But through the years I have learned how my body responds in these situation so it's not a big problem for me.

Were you ever discriminated against due to your diabetes?
I've never experienced any type of discrimination just because I'm a diabetic. I make sure people realize it's part of who I am and they respect that.

Do your coaches and teammates understand your diabetes?
They might not have a lot of knowledge about diabetes, but I always explain to all my teammates and coaches what it's all about.

What is the Bas van der Goor Foundation?
Bas van de Goor used to be a professional volleyball player. He participated in 2 Olympic games, winning the gold medal in Atlanta in 1996. In 2003 he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and he continued playing volleyball at the highest level. After his career he started a foundation with the mission to enhance the quality of life for people with diabetes through exercise and sport. Together with the office, they organise activities and invite their ambassadors to talk about their experiences of playing sports
and having diabetes. And I'm one of those ambassadors!

What advice would you give other kids who have diabetes and want to excel at basketball or a sport they love?
Don't be afraid to make mistakes, you can only learn from them. The best way to get to know your body is to keep testing it and see how it responds to different situations. Diabetes doesn't have to mean you can't chase and live your dreams!

What are your strengths and weaknesses in basketball?
I'm a strong presence inside that can rebound the ball and is capable of making shots and creating for others. But, of course I'm still improving my game daily. I'm trying to get faster and improve my outside game.

You have signed a one-year deal with Canarias Basketball Academy, one step away from going to the States?
We'll just have to see what the future has in store for me! If your goal is to become the best player you can possibly be, CBA is the way to go. My sister played NCAA Division one basketball in Denver, Colorado so I already got a little sneakpeak of what might be in store for me if I'm able to head to the states. It's definitely something I would go for if I got the chance!

Thanks for doing this interview Jordy
