Gary Scheiner MS, CDE (2014 AADE Diabetes Educator of the Year) and the rest of the clinical team at Integrated Diabetes Services have designed a 25-question multiple-choice test to assess your knowledge, skills and abilities in diabetes management. The test is based on the contents of Scheiner’s best-selling book, “Think Like A Pancreas: A Practical Guide to Managing Diabetes with Insulin,” along with the latest approaches & treatments in diabetes management. Answers and scoring/interpretation are included at the end of the test. If you go to our homepage (www.integrateddiabetes.com) just click on the Homer Simpson "take the quiz" icon. We'd love to hear how you do!
And because the folks at Integrated Diabetes Services think it’s important to have some fun along the way, the test has a Simpson’s theme (based on the TV show, The Simpsons).
“The test ain’t easy, but then again, neither is living with diabetes,” says Scheiner, who is approaching 30 years with type-1 diabetes. “Your score will let you know if you learned something from all of your reading and clinic appointments, or if you fell asleep at Chapter 1.”
Exactly how many grams of carb are there in D’Oh? Take the test and find out.
Go to integrateddiabetes.com/diabetesquiz.html. I did and scored a 68%, 17 out of 25.
Scheiner encourages everyone to post their score (and what you might have learned) on the Integrated Diabetes Services facebook page, or tweet about it to your heart’s content.
We have this book as well as many more helpful books available in our resource section.
