New This Week

- The Featured Book of the Week is Type 1 Diabetes and Babysitting by Stacey Smith-Bradfield and Dayna Frei.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
One evening, after dinner, our daughter who has diabetes asked me to get her some Hershey's Kisses to eat. I grabbed the bag as her siblings also asked for some. I gave two to her sister, then I gave my daughter two. She said, "Please give me another one; I bolused for three." Her non-diabetic sister quickly chimed it, "Well, I bolused for five."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when, instead of whispering "sweet nothings" to each other in the middle of the night, you and your spouse are talking about blood sugar numbers. See more parent humor.

- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
I have had type 1 for 26 years and have no complications. I am concerned about low diastolic readings when I check my blood pressure. Should I be concerned?
