5 Farms in Illinois grow more than 500 million pounds of pumpkins each year. An
average of 4,500 calories are consumed per person on Thanksgiving. The word
“Hanukkah” means “dedication” in Hebrew. The use of Christmas trees originated
in ancient Egypt and Rome. The term “Kwanzaa” comes from the Swahili phrase
“Matunda ya Kwanza,” meaning “first fruit of the harvest.” Do these facts have
you feeling festive? Check out “Tips for Navigating the Holidays” (page 32).
4 Telehealth visits have increased 50% during the coronavirus pandemic,
according to research by Frost & Sullivan consultants, and there are likely
to be over 1 billion “virtual healthcare interactions” by the end of 2020,
according to Forrester Research. If you have a virtual healthcare visit
coming up, check out “Making the Most of Your Diabetes Telehealth Visit”
(page 44) for expert strategies to maximize your appointment time.
3 The largest snowflake ever observed fell in Fort Keogh, Montana, in 1887
according to Guinness World Records—it was 15 inches wide and 8 inches
thick! The lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth was −128.6°F at
Vostok Station in Antarctica. Will Jack Frost be visiting your area soon? Read
“Welcoming Old Man Winter” (page 36) for expert advice on keeping the cold
weather from freezing your diabetes management efforts.
2 Bananas are technically a berry, and their scientific name is Musa
sapientum, which means “fruit of the wise men.” Humans share
about 50% of our DNA with bananas. These fruits can help lower
blood pressure and protect cardiovascular health thanks to their
high potassium and low salt content. Learn more about bananas,
including their role in a diabetes diet, in “Going Bananas” (page 52).
NOVEMBER 1 National Diabetes Month, which is observed annually in November, SHUTTERSTOCK
was established in 1975. World Diabetes Day was created in 1991 by the
2020 International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and World Health Organization (WHO)
and takes place every year on Nov. 14, the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting
DIABETES (who co-discovered insulin with Charles Best in 1922). Find out how one former
Law & Order star is helping spread awareness of the condition in “S. Epatha
AWARENESS Merkerson on Living With and Learning About Diabetes” (page 28).
