Gary’s Trivia Time! Test Your Knowledge of Diabetes – October 2019
Last month, we asked you to identify the three most common autoimmune conditions (out of a possible 30) that are found in people with type-1 diabetes.
Answer: (1) Thyroid disease (specifically Hashimoto’s hypothyroiditis), (2) Systemic rheumatic disease (specifically rheumatoid arthritis), and (3) gastrointestinal disease (specifically celiac sprue). Other common autoimmune conditions include alopecia, lupus, psoriasis, colitis and fibromyalgia.
Congratulations to Therese Hrncirik, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator from Madison, Wisconsin, for being the first to supply the correct answer.
NEW QUESTION for OCTOBER:
In a recent trivia question, I revealed that popcorn is my favorite food. In most cases, popcorn has about 5g carbohydrate per cup. Now if we could only know how many cups we’re eating! Here’s a picture of a large bucket from the movies. Guess how many cups it contains.
