Do You Know Diabetes? Quiz by NovoNordisk benefits Diabetes Hands Foundation

Do You Know Diabetes is a joint effort between Novo Nordisk and the Diabetes Hands Foundation to provide education and raise awareness about diabetes.

The cornerstone of the partnership is the “Do You Know Diabetes” quiz, which tests your knowledge of diabetes facts and statistics in a fun, engaging way.  The quiz is 10 questions, only takes 5 minutes, and you may be surprised to find some things you don't know, event if you have diabetes!

When you take the quiz, Novo Nordisk will make a donation to the Diabetes Hands Foundation, to aid in their efforts to connect people touched by diabetes and raise awareness of this chronic disease.  In the U.S., 26 million people have diabetes, and that number is growing each year.  Despite this increase in prevalence, education and awareness of the disease is lagging.  We have our job cut out for us!

Please take the quiz today and share it with your friends and family.

80%, not very well!

I got 80%, too. Darn statistics!

I scored 80%, too.

I took it; however it would be nice if everything on this quiz were accurate! "Type 1 = total lack of insulin" - not true, many Type 1's still have some residual insulin production. "Type 1 accounts for 5-10% of all diabetics". Actually even the long held belief was 10%, not 5-10. But it has been determined that 10-25% of "Type 2's" have been misdiagnosed and are actually Type 1's. This raises the type 1 numbers significantly.

Sounds like good feedback for the makers of the quiz, Zoe! If you go to and scroll to the bottom there are some feedback links :)

Will do, Emily, thanks!

Great to know, Spring! Thanks for the feedback :)

I took the quiz, did you?

I got 70% that's worse.

I got 70% also. Hmmm.

We are obviously not D enough Trudy !

Well, with my seasonal rising needs for insulin, I sure do feel very, very D!
