- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Living in Wisconsin, one really needs to make sure you have insulation in your house. I had some contractors come to give me an estimate of how much insulation I would need to have blown in. I asked the contractor, "So, how many bags of insulin will I need to make sure I have the proper amount of insulin in my house?" The contractor looked at me and said, "I think you mean insulation, not INSULIN."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when everyone in the family says they are "low" instead of hungry! See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My daughter has intermittent high blood sugars, with symptoms, yet had no antibodies, and an acceptable A1c. Can type 1 develop slowly? The doctor has not yet diagnosed type 1, is unsure what is going on. Should we get a second opinion from a different endocrinologist?
See the answer.
