Diabetes Survey: Which non-Think-Like-A-Pancreas book is your favorite?
IDS Monthly Survey: July 2020
LAST MONTH’S SURVEY QUESTION:
In last month’s Diabetes Bites, we asked, how has your physical activity been affected by the coronavirus shutdowns?
There were 128 responses.
14%: I’ve done virtually no exercise since this all started. 29%: I’m still working out, but less than I did before. 32%: I really have not changed my level of activity. 25%: I’m actually exercising more than I did pre-shutdown.
*Since almost half of the respondents reported exercising less than prior to the pandemic, it is worth noting that our exercise physiology intern (and fellow type-1) Kathryn Gentile offers complimentary consultations for anyone looking to set up a more structured home workout program. If interested, send Kathryn an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, if you would like some guidance on managing your glucose optimally with any form of physical activity, reach out to your friendly IDS clinician.
THIS MONTH’S NEW SURVEY QUESTION:
Since Gary’s new edition of Think Like A Pancreas launched back in May, it has been a top seller in the diabetes community. But there’s more to life than thinking like a pancreas. Many excellent books focus on managing successfully with intensive insulin therapy.
Which non-Think-Like-A-Pancreas book is your personal favorite?
A. Pumping Insulin (by John Walsh & Ruth Roberts) B. Bright Spots & Landmines (by Adam Brown) C. Sugar Surfing (by Stephen Ponder) D. Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution (by Richard Bernstein) E. Diabetes for Dummies (by Alan Rubin)
