- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
After recently buying "Mary Poppins" on DVD, our 6 kids went around singing all the songs. Well, John, our pumping 5 year old son had to put his own twist on "A Spoonful of Sugar." His version goes:Just a bolus full of insulin makes my sugars come down,
sugars come down,
sugars come down.
In the most painless way!
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you go to tell the person in front of you that their pump tubing is hanging out, only to realize that it's the headphone wire connected to their iPod. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My son wears a CGM, wakes up at night if I do a fingerstick. Is it safe to do a correction without a fingerstick check? I assume the CGM may be off by about 20%?
See the answer.
