Questions from Students:
Question: Dear Dr. Dixon, I have a question about #42 in Diabetes Progression Practice Question. It said the reason for Type 2 diabetes is unable of secreting enough insulin. But according to your ppt, that is for Type 1. If a person does not respond to insulin, it would be Type 2. Did I misunderstand something? Best, (Note; the students attached some screen shots)
Answer: Thank you for your very insightful question. The answer for question # 42 seems contradictory, but you need to understand this time in the patient’s progression. As the Type 2 diabetic patient is becoming severely Type 2 diabetic (right panel), the pancreas beta cells become “burnt out,” or they stop functioning because they are dead or severely injured. In that situation, the Type 2 Diabetic patient become very similar to a Type 1 diabetic patient. They need insulin injections just like a Type 1 diabetic patient. But remember, they have suffered years of insulin insensitivity and high glucoses, so the whole course of the Type 2 disease is very different than the course of the Type 1 disease. I hope this answers your excellent question! Joe Dixon
Question: Can you do Practice question 28? “pina colada drink question”
Answer: Set it up like –
Alcohol is 20 gram x 7 = 140 Kcal
Carbohydrate is 18 x 4 = 72 Kcal
Fat is 9 x 2 = 18 Kcal
Protein is 1 x 4 = 4 Kcal
Total Kcal = 234 Kcal (answer c)
By the way, all the questions on the real test are much simpler than this question – but it is good to check your answer twice!
