- 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:
When my 5-year-old daughter, Danielle, was diagnosed with diabetes we explained it to her and her 3-year-old brother, Ben, that her blood sugar could be high, low or in the middle and we were trying to keep her in the middle by giving her insulin shots. A few weeks later we took both of them to get their flu shots and Ben started screaming as loud as he could to anyone who would listen, "I am in the middle! I am in the middle!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you no longer say it's time for dinner -- instead you yell to everyone that it's time to check blood sugars. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
I have had type 1 for 26 years and have no complications. I am concerned about low diastolic readings when I check my blood pressure. Should I be concerned?
See the answer.
