New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers about how satisfied they are with the care their child receives at school. This week's poll asks our readers if they use a continuous glucose monitoring system.
- 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:
My eight-year-old son recently spoke to his class about an upcoming walk to cure diabetes and invited them to come and walk on behalf of his ten-year-old diabetic sister. He told me that he explained diabetes to his class and told them the following: "The white blood cells in my sister's body attacked her pancreas and now she doesn't have any more eyelids."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when our daughter asks, "Can I get some ketchup to go with my test strips?" instead of her chicken strips. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
After 54 years with diabetes, I am in good control. Lately, I have "pins and needles" in my hands and feet. Are these sensations related to diabetes?
See the answer.
