New This Week
- Lynda Fisher, MD, joins our board.
- For some time now, weâ€™ve had a great working relationship with dQ&A, a diabetes research company based in San Francisco. dQ&A stands for Diabetes Questions and Answers, and they deliver feedback from people with diabetes to the companies that provide our medications, devices and care. They work with pretty much everyone in the diabetes field and have presented several times at Friends For Life. More importantly, their survey results have been instrumental in bringing new diabetes technology to the market.
Today, weâ€™d like to invite you to become part of dQ&Aâ€™s research process - they are looking for more families to take part in their quarterly feedback surveys. This is a great way to make sure that your voice heard by the leaders of diabetes care companies.
dQ&A will make a small donation to Children With Diabetes for every family that signs up, as well as compensating you for time you spend taking their surveys.
Please give this your consideration. If you wish to sign up and join the dQ&A Research Panel, visit this link.
- Last week's poll readers to tell us a bit about themselves. This week's poll asks readers if they have their most recent basal rates, insulin-to-carb ratios, and correction factors written down.
- The Featured Book of the Week is My Sister Has Diabetes and How That Makes Me Feel by Grace Rooney.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My son recently was ill and had returned to school. His blood sugar went extremely low and the rescue had to be called. This obviously caused quite a commotion at the school. That evening a mother called to say that her daughter was worried about my son and had reported "Mom, his blood sugar was so low it was down to his belly button!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your six year old runs to the bathroom yelling "I've got to go Type 2!" See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
If a child has type 1 diabetes and on an insulin pump, would they be on an unrestricted diet, meaning that they can eat anything in any quantity and not have complications?
See the answer.
