Sweets and desserts can be eaten by people with diabetes.

a) True
b) False


Answer: a) True

If eaten as part of a healthy meal plan, or combined with exercise.
They are no more "off limits" to people with diabetes than they are to people without diabetes. The key to sweets is to have a very small portion and save them for special occasions so you focus your meal on more healthful foods.


Back
The American Diabetes Association recommends that people should limit their intake of sugar-sweetened beverages to help prevent diabetes. Just one 12-ounce can of regular soda has 40 grams of carbohydrate. This is the same amount of carbohydrate in:

a) 4 teaspoons of sugar
b) 6 teaspoons of sugar
c) 10 teaspoons of sugar








Answer: c) 10 teaspoons of sugar






Special diabetic and "dietetic" foods
generally offer no special benefit.

a) True
b) False


Answer: a) True.

A healthy meal plan for people with diabetes is generally the same as a healthy diet for anyone.
Most diabetic foods raise blood glucose levels, are usually more expensive and can also have a laxative effect if they contain sugar alcohols.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as ____________ adults will have diabetes by 2050 if current trends continue.

Answer: a) True

These days, children as young as age 5 are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. That's a big change from 20 or 30 years ago. To help prevent diabetes in children, parents should try to encourage good habits for the entire family.

If you are overweight or obese, you will eventually
develop type 2 diabetes.

a) True
b) False


Answer: b) False.

Being overweight is a risk factor for developing this disease, but other risk factors such as family history, ethnicity and age also play a role. Unfortunately, too many people disregard the other risk factors for diabetes and think that weight is the only risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Many people with type 2 diabetes are at a normal weight or only moderately overweight.


BACK
People with diabetes are more likely to get colds
and other illnesses.

a) True
b) False

Answer: b) False.

However, people with diabetes are advised to get flu shots. This is because any illness can make diabetes more difficult to control, and people with diabetes who do get the flu are more likely than others to go on to develop serious complications.

BACK
If you have type 2 diabetes and your doctor says you need to start using insulin, it means you're failing to take care of your diabetes properly.
 
a) True
b) False

Answer: b) False.

Using insulin to get blood glucose levels to a healthy level is a good thing, not a bad one. When first diagnosed, many people with type 2 diabetes can keep their blood glucose at a healthy level with oral medications. But over time, the body gradually produces less and less of its own insulin, and eventually oral medications may not be enough to keep blood glucose levels normal. This is when insulin is used.

BACK
A diabetes diagnosis means you
automatically need insulin with:

a) Type I diabetes
b) Type II diabetes
c) Both
d) Neither

Answer: a) Type I diabetes.

In some cases, proper diet, exercise, and oral medications, if needed, can keep type II diabetes under control for some time before insulin becomes necessary
