New This Week
- Our report from Friends for Life® Orlando 2017 includes thousands of photos.
- Last week's poll asked our readers if their child's school district trains teachers, coaches and other non-nurse school staff to give insulin. This week's poll asks our readers if diabetes has affected their children who do not have it.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Breakthrough: Elizabeth Hughes, the Discovery of Insulin, and the Making of a Medical Miracle by Thea Cooper and Arthur Ainsberg.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
The day after my daughter started pumping, she experienced a low, so I decided to pick her up from school. Imagine my surprise when the nurse told me "She's suspended." As she realized my eyes had widened, she corrected herself, saying, "Oh, I meant her pump."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you wake up the whole house with the sound of a horrible scream when you accidentally stick your daughter's best friend (at 2:00 am) during a slumber party. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
