Kasper Dolberg diagnosed with type 1 diabetes after weeks of feeling 'off' as he pulls out of Denmark team

DENMARK international Kasper Dolberg has temporarily pulled out of international duty after being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

Dolberg received the news just recently as he underwent several medical tests after "feeling a bit off the last couple of weeks".

However, the Nice star has been reassured by doctors that with the right treatment this will have no effect on his football career.

The centre-forward is now trying to get used to the new remedy and agreed with Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand that it would be best if he sat out the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against the Faroe Islands and Scotland.

Dolberg put together a story on Instagram with the following statement: "Dear fans, this week I received some results on a medical test and it turns out that I have diabetes [type] 1.

"Of course, the news came as a surprise, but I am honestly relieved to finally have discovered the reason, for feeling a bit off the last couple of weeks.

"Also I'm extremely happy that the doctors could tell me that with the right treatment, it will have no effect on my football career!

"I've been training the whole week, and I already feel a lot better.

"To get used to the small treatment, I decided together with Kasper Hjulmand, that I will not be playing for the national team this week.

"In addition to this, I would like [to] thank the club and the Danish federation for the support and understanding regarding the situation.

"Thank you! See you soon."

Dolberg made his senior international debut in 2016 and has since amassed a total of 10 goals in 32 caps.
