Congratulations to Christian Peiner of Zurch, Switzerland for being the first to correctly answer last month’s trivia question:  Can you name three movies that feature a character with diabetes.  A Human Resources manager, Christian has had T1D for 26 years and enjoys exercising, reading to his kids, and apparently, watching movies.

Answer: I could not believe how many movies our readers came up with! Here’s the list:

  • Bread and Roses
  • Broken
  • Chocolat
  • Con Air
  • Fed Up
  • The Godfather part III
  • Hansel & Gretel: Witch hunters
  • Mall Cop
  • Nothing in Common
  • Panic Room
  • Patch Adams
  • Regarding Henry
  • Soul Food
  • Steel Magnolias
  • That’s my Boy
  • The Baby-Sitters Club

diabetes trivia question

In a soon-to-be released report from the T1D Exchange, it was discovered that approximately 60% of people with type-1 diabetes never download and look at their own meter/pump/CGM data, and only about 25% do so more than once a year.

What is the most common reason cited by survey respondents for not downloading their devices?
