Of Continuing Interest
- Riding on Insulin offers wonderful one-day ski and snowboard camps for kids ages 7-17 living with type 1 diabetes and their siblings.
New This Week
- Prevent T1D is a place for families who are working to prevent Type 1 Diabetes. Many of us are parents who already have a child with T1D, and are looking for ways to delay or stop a second childâ€™s diagnosis.
- Last week's poll asked readers about how much time they spend each day on diabetes care. This week's poll asks our readers about who administers insulin to their child in child care setting.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Understanding Insulin Pumps, Continuous Glucose Monitors and the Artificial Pancreas, 3rd Edition by H. Peter Chase, MD, and Laurel Messer, RN, MPH, CDE.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 last year. We became involved with the JDRF walk/fundraiser. After the walk, when we had to check her blood sugar and give her insulin before lunch she looked very confused and proceeded to explain to us that it was no longer necessary to do these things because we had just "walked to cure diabetes."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you are watching a football game and report that your team is behind by 4 units and nobody thinks a thing of it. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
After an up and down night of blood sugars, my adult daughter could not communicate with me, as if her brain were malfunctioning. She returned to normal after several hours and hospital tests. Is this common in long term diabetics with erratic blood sugars?
See the answer.
