- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My daughter came home from kindergarten and told me that her teacher almost sent her up to the nurse that day because she felt low. "Almost?" I asked (a little concerned). "Yeah," she said, "I was trying to tell her my CRAYON was low, and hard to color with. She didn't understand!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when the coffee pot or other kitchen appliance beeps and your child says, "That wasn't me!" (Quote from my 3 year old after beginning pumping.) See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My daughter was put on high dose estrogen pills for severe menstrual bleeding. Her blood sugars then went up, as did her A1c. Was this an appropriate treatment for a teen with type 1? Blood work also shows her AST is elevated from taking the pills. Do I need to worry about liver damage?
See the answer.
