In the October edition of Diabetes Bites, we asked you to share your personal favorite spectator sport. Here’s how you responded:
38% (American) Football
12% Something else
Since football was far and away the most popular, it may interest you to know that the NFL has featured players with T1D for the past 20 years. Current and past NFL players with diabetes include Patrick Peterson (Arizona Cardinals), Jay Cutler (Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears), Jay Leeuwenburg (Indianapolis Colts), Jake Byrne (San Diego Chargers), Mark Andrews (Baltimore Ravens), Mike Echols (Tennessee Titans), and Kendall Simmons (Pittsburgh Steelers).
THIS MONTH’S NEW SURVEY QUESTION:
With Thanksgiving and other holidays right around the corner, what is your approach to handling big holiday meals, in light of having diabetes?
