One co-author reported receiving royalties for books on the management of diabetes (which were used by members of the online social media group surveyed for the study). Two other co-authors also reported receiving royalties related to books on low-carbohydrate diets and books on nutrition and obesity in general, and another reported an ownership interest in companies using low-carbohydrate principles. Other co-authors reported financial relationships with Virta Health, Atkins, Merck, and AstraZeneca.


Howell got help organizing Sunday's triathlon from her supervisor, Beth Riske, and from Corey Snyder from U-M Med Sport. They had 60 volunteers from their staff sign up for the event.

Howell, Riske, and Snyder contacted Domino Farm's, which opened up its facilities for the event.

There were 27 athletes, ranging in age from 4 to 15, from all over southeast Michigan.

Kevin Jones, 54, of Jackson, said his son Zachariah Ashley, who has a mild form of cerebral palsy, has been looking forward to the event ever since he got a flyer.

"(Zachariah) has been putting his swim trunks on - 'Where are my swim trunks dad, so I can be ready?'" Jones said. "We were so excited about the event we forgot his crutches."

On April 17, Miller went into surgery for a multi-level laminectomy after she experienced “excruciating neck pain.”
