- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
On top of the cookies in the cookie jar is a paper with 6c. (6 Carbohydrates) each written on it. Upon returning from getting a cookie, my non-diabetic nephew says, "I don't have 6 cents to pay for each one of these cookies." My 5 year old diabetic son said, "It's carbs, not cents!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when doing math homework, in response to the question "Name three things that you use in your home to measure with and draw a picture of it," your 6-year-old son writes "syringe" and painstakingly draws a picture of it. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week

Studies and Surveys
- The University of Pennsylvania is inviting parents of children with diabetes to participate in a survey on perceptions and behaviors relating to severe hypoglycemia. By participating in this 10 minute survey, you will be contributing valuable information to a research project about a subject that is very important to the physical and psychological safety of children with diabetes. We are looking forward to learn about your experiences!
