Rebounding from diabetes with team Wellstar
As a Hall of Fame basketball star, Dominique Wilkins knows what it takes to stay on top of his game. He’s even nicknamed “The Human Highlight Film” for his legendary slam dunks and athletic ability on the court.
Performing at such a high level, he felt invincible. But after receiving a type 2 diabetes diagnosis at age 40, Dominique was caught completely off-guard.
Turns out, even the pros are at risk for chronic conditions.
“When I was diagnosed with diabetes a year after I retired, it was frightening because both my father and grandfather passed away from type 1 diabetes,” he shared. “It quickly changed my life.”
Dominique didn’t let the news stop him from taking charge of his health. He turned his diagnosis into determination.
Dominique has focused on becoming the healthiest version of himself by eating right, exercising regularly and taking medication.
Ever since teaming up with Wellstar, his rebound has been doubly impressive. Here, he’s found expert care and support to help him live a full, healthy life.
