- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
I overheard the cutest thing while we were at a diabetes walk. Emily was walking in front of me with my 6 year old nephew. I was listening to them talk. He said to her, "Em, why are we walking around this place anyway?" I heard her tell him, "We are walking to find a cure for diabetes." My nephew said, "Well, where am I supposed to be looking for it?" I could have died laughing.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you ask your child, "Did you test?" and the child nearby says in a panic, "What test? When was it?" See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week

Because her blood sugars are often in range, could our daughter have type 2, not type 1? How do we know if she is still producing insulin? Is it safe to stop insulin for 24 hours to see what her "natural" blood sugar is?
