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 asked readers if they have their most recent basal rates, insulin-to-carb ratios, and correction factors written down. This week's poll asks readers if they have sough counseling to help cope with the challenges of diabetes.
- The Featured Book of the Week is A First Book for Understanding Diabetes (companion to the 13th Edition of "Understanding Diabetes") by H. Peter Chase, MD and David M. Maahs, MD, PhD.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
One evening, after dinner, our daughter who has diabetes asked me to get her some Hershey's Kisses to eat. I grabbed the bag as her siblings also asked for some. I gave two to her sister, then I gave my daughter two. She said, "Please give me another one; I bolused for three." Her non-diabetic sister quickly chimed it, "Well, I bolused for five."
