New This Week
- In conjunction with our Focus on Technology: Anaheim 2015 conference, CWD is hosting A Private Evening with Ed Damiano, PhD, Creator of the Bionic Pancreas as a fundraiser for the Bionic Pancreas Project and CWD's conferences.
- Last week's poll asked readers how diabetes has impacted their children who do not have it. This week's poll asks readers who drive how often they check their blood glucose before driving.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Understanding Diabetes, 13th Edition by H. Peter Chase, MD, and David M. Maahs, MD, PhD.
- 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 you go out to dinner and your child accidentally asks for A1C sauce for his steak instead of A1 sauce. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
A year ago, my teen daughter's A1c was 9.6. She ran high, struggled to keep from gaining weight. Now, her A1c is 7.6 and she has lost 16 pounds. Why is it that she is able to lose weight so quickly now? Can consistent highs prevent weight loss even when on a low calorie/low carbohydrate diet?
See the answer.
