New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers how often they receive a retinal photograph as part of their diabetes care. This week's poll asks parents how soon after their child was diagnosed they began going out with their spouse.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Gluten Freedom by Alessio Fasano, MD.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
The other day my mom texted me this: "2 100's today". She watches my son Cole while I attend college full time. I texted back, "good, I changed his basal the other day". She texted back, "No, I was talking about his school work -- two 100% on his school work." We both laughed really hard -- this would only happen if you had a child with diabetes.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you clean the lint trap of your clothes dryer and find a bunch of test strips. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week

Since getting a Depo Provera shot for her PCOS, my daughter's blood sugars have remained between 300 and 600 mg/dl [16.7 and 33.3 mmol/L]. Is this from the shot? How long will this last?
