New This Week

- Last week's poll asked parents if someone at their child's school will administer glucagon if needed. This week's poll asks readers if their diabetes care team allows them to choose their diabetes care products.
- The Featured Book of the Week is My Sister Has Diabetes and How That Makes Me Feel by Grace Rooney, Illustrated by Michele Pensa.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
One evening during the dinner rush, I asked my diabetic 4-year-old Emma to get the twins some Cheerios so they would stop crying. The crying didn't stop right away, and when I looked over at the twins in their high chairs, they were really frustrated and mad. Emma was sitting just out of their reach, meticulously measuring out their Cheerios into bowls with a tablespoon. She wanted to make sure they "weren't eating too many carbs, Mommy!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you are in bed ill and your child with diabetes asks, "Do you have ketones?" and then offers to let you have some of insulin so you'll get better. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
