Congratulations to Dave Little, a low-carber and CGM user from Ontario, Canada, for correctly answering last month’s trivia question: 

Which two former NFL quarterbacks have type-1 diabetes?

Answer:  Jay Cutler and Wade Wilson.  Jay enjoyed a successful 12-year career playing for the Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins, throwing for 227 touchdowns and over 35,000 yards.  Wade’s QB career spanned 17 seasons, mostly with the Minnesota Vikings, where he also served as the team’s emergency backup punter.  Just goes to prove that diabetes doesn’t have to limit our accomplishments.

NEW QUESTION for OCTOBER:

pie chartIt’s always fun trying to explain the difference between type-1 and type-2 diabetes to people who know nothing about it.  Of course, type-1 diabetes is the clear minority.  According to a recent study conducted at the University of Iowa, what percentage of people diagnosed with diabetes have Type 1? (Please don’t look it up online!  And provide your answer to the nearest tenth of a percent.)  

The first person with the correct answer (or closest to the correct answer) wins their choice of book from our online or in-office store.
