- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Living in Wisconsin, one really needs to make sure you have insulation in your house. I had some contractors come to give me an estimate of how much insulation I would need to have blown in. I asked the contractor, "So, how many bags of insulin will I need to make sure I have the proper amount of insulin in my house?" The contractor looked at me and said, "I think you mean insulation, not INSULIN."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you keep your insulated diaper bag because it makes a great insulin carrier, even though your youngest child is 6 and 1/2. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
Only 39, I have been having menopause symptoms for about four years. The nurse practitioner refused to prescribe estrogen or birth control pills, recommending B6 and Neurontin. Should I get a second opinion? I am miserable.
See the answer.
