Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Type 1 Diabetes is also called Juvenile Diabetes. Can a person be diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at any age?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, a person can be diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at any age. Although it is commonly diagnosed in children and young adults, it can also occur in adults. Juvenile Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This leads to a lack of insulin, which is necessary to regulate blood sugar levels. The term "Juvenile" is used because it is often diagnosed in childhood, but it does not exclude the possibility of being diagnosed later in life.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which of the following numbers would be considered a GOOD blood sugar level?

    • A.

      24

    • B.

      50

    • C.

      200

    • D.

      120

    • E.

      500

    Correct Answer
    D. 120
    Explanation
    A blood sugar level of 120 would be considered a GOOD level because it falls within the normal range. Normal blood sugar levels typically range from 70 to 140 mg/dL. Levels below 70 may indicate hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) while levels above 140 may indicate hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), which can be a sign of diabetes. Therefore, a blood sugar level of 120 is within the healthy range and is considered good.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    How often should a person with Type 1 Diabetes check their blood sugar levels each day?

    • A.

      Once a day

    • B.

      Twice a day

    • C.

      Not necessarily every day

    • D.

      4 or more times a day

    Correct Answer
    D. 4 or more times a day
    Explanation
    A person with Type 1 Diabetes should check their blood sugar levels 4 or more times a day. This is because Type 1 Diabetes requires constant monitoring of blood sugar levels to ensure they are within a safe range. Checking blood sugar levels multiple times a day allows for better management of the condition and helps prevent complications that can arise from high or low blood sugar levels.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Do people with Type 1 Diabetes need to take insulin everyday?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    People with Type 1 Diabetes need to take insulin every day because their bodies do not produce insulin on their own. Insulin is necessary to regulate blood sugar levels and without it, blood sugar can become dangerously high. Taking insulin helps to manage blood sugar levels and allows individuals with Type 1 Diabetes to live a healthy and normal life.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Should a person with Type 1 Diabetes ever drink water during an episode of high blood sugar?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    It is important for a person with Type 1 Diabetes to drink water during an episode of high blood sugar. Drinking water helps to hydrate the body and can help to lower blood sugar levels. Additionally, water can help to flush out excess sugar from the bloodstream and prevent dehydration, which is a common risk during high blood sugar episodes. Therefore, it is recommended for individuals with Type 1 Diabetes to drink water during episodes of high blood sugar.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Should a person with Type 1 Diabetes who is experiencing a low blood sugar level do some form of exercise or physical activity?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    A person with Type 1 Diabetes who is experiencing a low blood sugar level should not engage in exercise or physical activity. This is because exercise can further lower blood sugar levels and potentially lead to hypoglycemia, which can be dangerous. Instead, they should consume a source of fast-acting carbohydrates to raise their blood sugar levels to a safe range before considering any physical activity.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Can you get Type 1 Diabetes from eating too much sugar?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. It is not caused by eating too much sugar. However, excessive sugar consumption can contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes, a different form of diabetes that is characterized by insulin resistance.

  • 8. 

    Do parents cause Type 1 Diabetes in their children by making poor lifestyle choices?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The correct answer is no. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. It is not caused by poor lifestyle choices made by parents. The exact cause of Type 1 Diabetes is still unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Are there different levels of severity in cases of Type 1 Diabetes? (mild, moderate, and severe)

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    There are no different levels of severity in cases of Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This results in a complete lack of insulin production, leading to high blood sugar levels. Unlike Type 2 Diabetes, which can have varying levels of severity depending on factors such as insulin resistance and lifestyle, Type 1 Diabetes is a lifelong condition that requires daily insulin injections or the use of an insulin pump.

    Can you prevent yourself or your child from getting Type 1 Diabetes?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. Currently, there is no known way to prevent Type 1 Diabetes. It is not caused by lifestyle choices or habits, and it cannot be prevented through diet or exercise. Type 1 Diabetes is typically diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, but it can develop at any age. While there are ways to manage and treat the condition, such as insulin therapy, there is no known method to prevent its onset.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Can people with Type 1 Diabetes eat a normal diet that includes sweets?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    People with Type 1 Diabetes can eat a normal diet that includes sweets because they can still consume carbohydrates, including sugar, as long as they carefully monitor their blood sugar levels and adjust their insulin dosage accordingly. However, it is important for them to maintain a balanced and healthy diet overall to manage their diabetes effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Do people with Type 1 Diabetes need to be aware of their of how many carbohydrates they eat? 

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    People with Type 1 Diabetes need to be aware of how many carbohydrates they eat because carbohydrates have a direct impact on blood sugar levels. Since people with Type 1 Diabetes have little to no insulin production, they need to carefully monitor their carbohydrate intake and adjust their insulin dosage accordingly. This helps them maintain stable blood sugar levels and prevent complications associated with high or low blood sugar.
