Diabetes Bites Newsletter


Last month, we asked for the percentage of people who held their diabetes clinic appointments virtually (via telemedicine) in the spring of 2020.

ANSWER: 95%.  This shows how necessity truly is the mother of invention!  Of course, we’ve been offering virtual diabetes care for nearly 20 years, so this was nothing new. 

CONGRATS TO: Teré Maher, a speech-language pathologist from Falls Church, VA, USA for coming closest to the correct answer.  Teré has lived with T1D for 46 years and also has a son with T1D.




Given the moral fiber we all showed during the pandemic, this month’s questions is about… FIBER.

Yep, that magical carb that provides satiety, prevents certain forms of cancer, delays digestion, and has hardly any effect on blood sugar.  With all that going for it, how many grams of fiber are recommended for most adults for every 1000 calories consumed?
