- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My six year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 on April 1 (of all days!). He is an avid Pokemon fan. We were teaching him how to read the nutrition labels and find out how many carbs are in various foods. One day he picked up a can of light lemonade and said "Mom, this does 2 points damage, can I drink this?" So now we track our carbs by how many "hit points" or how much "damage" a food will do.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your son gets a bloody nose and you reach for the glucose meter to check his blood sugar. See more parent humor.
