- Last week's poll asked readers if they have their most recent basal rates, insulin-to-carb ratios, and correction factors written down. This week's poll asks readers if they have sought counseling to help cope with diabetes.
- The Featured Book of the Week is 50 Diabetes Myths That Can Ruin Your Life and the 50 Diabetes Truths That Can Save It by Riva Greenberg.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
When my 5-year-old daughter, Danielle, was diagnosed with diabetes we explained it to her and her 3-year-old brother, Ben, that her blood sugar could be high, low or in the middle and we were trying to keep her in the middle by giving her insulin shots. A few weeks later we took both of them to get their flu shots and Ben started screaming as loud as he could to anyone who would listen, "I am in the middle! I am in the middle!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you find parts of syringes in your son's room and he is now using them as swords and granades for his action figures, after throwing away the needle part, of course! See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
If a teen with diabetes has an A1c over 10, what will happen? I cannot afford a pump and have forgotten my insulin to carbohydrate ratio. Every day, I wake up over 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/L], sometimes over 300 mg/dl [16.7 mmol/L]. Is the doctor going to put me in the hospital?
See the answer.
