New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers how satisfied they are with their diabetes care regimen. This week's poll asks parents about where their child checks their blood glucose level while at school.
- The Featured Book of the Week is My Life as a Pancreas: Reflections on Raising a Child with Diabetes by Priscilla Call Essert.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
It was shortly before noon and my 6 year old told me that she felt low, so she grabbed her monitor and tested her blood sugar. She announced that her blood sugar was 33 so I panicked and grabbed a glucose tablet and juice box. After I juiced her up, I tested her again to see if her blood sugar had come up and the monitor now read "HI". I checked her previous reading and the monitor read "303". I guess in her little mind's eye it read 30 3. This will be a family favorite for years to come.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your husband comes in and asks your child what they are up to and they respond "176" instead of "playing." See more parent humor.

I will be on steroids for at least six months due to pertussis. My A1c has always been under 7.1 and I am wondering about the effects of the steroids. Will I be more prone to DKA?
