New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers how often they worry about nighttime hypoglycemia. This week's poll asks readers about the insulins they use.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Diabetes Through the Looking Glass: Seeing diabetes from your child's perspective by Dr Rachel Besser.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Everynight at the dinner table our family askes what each of our "highs" and "lows" are (meaning best and worst part of each of our day). Going around the table we each tell of a typical thing, until we get to our 8 year old who was diagnosed 5 weeks prior. She starts laughing and states that her high was 554 and her low was 75 (her overall highs and lows during her 5 weeks of the diabetic world). Only a family with type 1 would understand.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when everyone in the family says they are "low" instead of hungry! See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
Do you have any suggestions for discipline when dealing with highs? How do you suggest we handle our younger daughter watching her older sister not get in trouble for things she herself is not allowed to get away with?
See the answer.
