New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers if they have a diabetes emergency kit prepared. This week's poll asks readers if they've been tested for celiac.
- The Featured Book of the Week is The ABCs of Loving Yourself with Diabetes by Riva Greenberg.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My son James has had diabetes since he was 14 months old. I attend a diabetes support group and the subject came up of giving the child with diabetes control over their diabetes. One example they gave was to have the child decide where they wanted their shot (e.g., arm, stomach, thigh, buttocks). The next morning I asked James, who was 3 at the time, "Where would you like your shot today?" James' response was, "IN THOMAS". Thomas is James' older brother. Thank God for James, he does keep us laughing!
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your dog's favorite toy is an empty test strip bottle! See more parent humor.
