Diabetes Bites Newsletter

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.


trivia question popcorn

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.

*The first person to submit the correct answer wins their choice of book from our in-store or online bookstore.
