Trivia Time! Test Your Knowledge of Diabetes – November 2018
Congratulations to Mary Patricia Mowat, a 38-year veteran of type-1 diabetes in the process of moving from New Jersey to Florida.
Mary supplied the closest answer to last month’s trivia question:What percentage of people diagnosed with diabetes have Type 1?
Answer:5.6%. Even though the incidence of type-1 diabetes has been increasing steadily, the rise is overshadowed by the increase in type-2.Nearly 30 million Americans have been diagnosed with diabetes, with the number increasing by about 1.5 million annually.
NEW QUESTION for OCTOBER:
Having spent the last week lecturing across Canada, I became accustomed to seeing blood sugar values such as “5.8” and “9.3”.Of course, these are expressed as mmol/l, not the mg/dl format used in the United States.The fact is, much of the world, including the majority of Europe, measures blood sugar in mmol/l.
For trivial fame, how does one covert blood sugars in mmol/l to mg/dl?
The first person with the correct answer wins their choice of book from our online or in-office store.
