New This Week
- Last week's poll asked how they feel about insurance companies dictating the diabetes care products that they can use. This week's poll asks parents who have kids in day care about who helps with insulin administration.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Kids First Diabetes Second: Tips for Parents a Child with Type 1 Diabetes by Leighann Calentine.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Let me begin by saying that when I'm stressed, it tends to work it's way to my stomach. When my son was diagnosed at 3, the doctor was sitting on the bed next to him, having a very big boy discussion about what diabetes was. The doctor said, "Can you say it? Can you say DI-A-BE-TES?" My son looked at him for a moment, very seriously, and said, "My mommy has DI-A-RHE-A".
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when the toilet is stuffed, you call the plumber, he snakes the bowl, and at the end of his snake is a piece of blue plastic that just happens to match the blue plastic cover of your son's inset infusion set. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My teen had highs and moderate ketones from two pump failures. Would it have been okay to give her a snack when she asked for one?
See the answer.
