- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Last week, Scott took Daniel and Jesse to Raceway Park in New Jersey to see drag racing, funny car races, etc. The other night, at about 11:15 pm, the house phone rings. I picked it up to hear Daniel say, "389." I said, "What did Jesse eat? Didn't the CGM alarm? What's wrong?" I'm kind of panicky. Daniel laughed and said, "Ma, what are you talking about?" I said, "A blood sugar of 389 is nothing to laugh about!" My brilliant son said, "Ma, I don't know what you're talking about. But Dad just filled up your gas tank at $3.89 a gallon."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when while driving in the car with your diabetic child, a radio show asks listeners to call in with the answer to the question, "What do parents most often say at their kids?" and your daughter answers, "Did you bolus?" 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 had rage episodes to include aggressive, defiant and destructive behavior, either when very low or very high. Are these episodes related to her diabetes? What impact does adrenaline have on blood glucose levels?
