Congratulations to Patrick Brady, an architect from Arlington, VA who has lived with type-1 for 30 years.  Patrick was first to answer last month’s trivia question:  What is the enzyme called that promotes rapid uptake of glucose by muscle cells during exercise? 

Answer:  GLUT-4.  I suppose that when the butt muscles are involved, it’s called “gluteus-4.”  (just kidding)

With (American) football season just kicking off (Go Eagles!!!), our thoughts turn to SNACKS.  Lots and lots of SNACKS.  Let’s say I devoured 6 ounces (170 grams) of chips during the first half.  Exactly how many grams of CARBOHYDRATE did I consume?

The first person to answer correctly will be recognized for their infinite brilliance, and wins their choice of book from our online or in-office store!
