- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My six-year-old son who was diagnosed at 23 months was asking me about DKA. I explained to him that DKA happens when you don't get enough insulin. I also told him that the only time he'd ever been in DKA was when he was first diagnosed because he wasn't getting any insulin at all since we didn't know he had diabetes. He looked at me sternly and said, "Mom! You should have looked at my i.d. bracelet!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you purchase a new baby monitor for your D 8-year-old's room. See more parent humor.
