New This Week
- Last week's poll asked our readers if they have a diabetes emergency kit prepared. This week's poll asks our readers if they or their child has been tested for celiac.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Breakthrough: Elizabeth Hughes, the Discovery of Insulin, and the Making of a Medical Miracle by Thea Cooper and Arthur Ainsberg.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Our youngest group of campers at Camp Koral Kids in Coral Springs, Florida are 5 and 6 years old, but have the wit and wisdom of adults. Diabetes education is an important component of camp and we try to incorporate it in all we do. When quizzing the little ones on diabetes concepts we get all kinds of great responses, but the best one by far was their response to the question of what we check for when our blood sugar is above 240. Their group response was "PEE-tones"! Kind of sums it all up, huh?
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your daughter asks, "Can I get some ketchup to go with my test strips?" instead of her chicken strips. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My daughter has been running high both in mornings and evenings. She is on Humulin 70/30. What do you recommend? My youngest son was just diagnosed, but I don't want to start him on insulin. What should I do?
See the answer.

Studies and Surveys
- CWD readers are invited to participate in a survey on new insulin pump concepts being conducted by a diabetes-focused research company. Participants must be either using an insulin pump or on multiple daily injections of insulin. As a token of their appreciation, the research company will be making a donation to the online diabetes community of your choice. Please see the survey for more information.
Diabetes in School
- Pennsylvania School Diabetes Care Legislation Now Pending - Legislation that would allow for school staff to be trained to help with routine or emergency care when the school nurse is not present is pending in the legislature.
