New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers what their plans are for Halloween. This week's poll asks our readers when they are most worried about hypoglycemia.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Balancing Diabetes: Conversations about finding happiness and living well by Kerri Sparling.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My three year old daughter Haley and I were reading one of her favorite bedtime stories, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. When we got to the page with all of the junk food the caterpillar ate, Haley named all of the goodies: a piece of cake, a piece of candy, pie, sausage, etc. After the very last one she said in all seriousness, "Mommy, he needs to check his blood sugar. He ate too much!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when, after a trip to Europe, you can say "sugar free" in 12 languages, but "How are you?" in only two. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
To stop fainting episodes when menstruating, my daughter was put on an oral contraceptive, which causes high blood sugars and weight gain. Is this a common phenomenon? Is there any other way to alleviate severe menstrual symptoms? And, are there long term hazards of being on the pill too long?
See the answer.
