- Last week's poll asked our readers to report how satisfied they are with the diabetes care their child receives at school. This week's poll asks readers about their insulin regimen.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Why Me? Why Did I Have To Get Diabetes? by Robert Messinger and Laura Messinger.
- Venom, part of CWD's Art and Poetry section, is Worth a Look.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My son recently was ill and had returned to school. His blood sugar went extremely low and the rescue had to be called. This obviously caused quite a commotion at the school. That evening a mother called to say that her daughter was worried about my son and had reported "Mom, his blood sugar was so low it was down to his belly button!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you wake up in the night, see the projection clock that says "5:30" and you think your child's blood sugar is 530! See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My son has been pumping for almost five years. His HbA1c was just 10.6. I know this is high and suspect there was a mistake in the testing. Would a very recent day of very elevated blood sugars have affected the HbA1c?
See the answer.
