This is a good quiz on some overall tips and information on diabetes. I finally did well on one of these!! You would think after so many years i would get it by now. I got 16 out of 17 right.

Got 94% 16/17. I misread the question about blood pressure. I thought it meant you would get hypertension and that isn't correct.

Im afraid I don't think I know much about diabetes as I got 3 out of the first 5 wrong even though Ive had it for 25 years. I feel my blood sugar getting high dammit!

That is one I had an issue with. What is high? For me, last year at this time 350 or more was high and I could tell. Now that I am off Crestor over 200 is high and I can feel it. I suppose 150 is high, but I am still happy at 150 so it is not right for me. Stupid question because they did not define high.

Knowing and doing are two different things. So even if you don't know, but you are still around after 25 years of dealing with it, you must be doing something right.

Yeah, I got the aerobics one wrong. I thought it was 150 minutes of any exercise.

See, that question should have been…"True or False. Anyone who exercises over 30 minutes a day will die"

Well, the answer to both questions is true. Please, if anybody got that wrong don't let us know! A man of great wisdom and wit once said, "Life is a sexually transmitted disease. Anyone who gets it will die". or something like that!

Stupid test. I had all the answers right, they just asked the wrong questions.
