New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers if they use a continuous glucose monitoring system. This week's poll asks our readers about the insulin regimen they use most often.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Think Like a Pancreas by Gary Scheiner, MS, CDE.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
On his first appointment after being diagnosed, the nurse was discussing injection sites with our son. "Where do you get your shots?" she asked, meaning, arm, hip, etc. "It all depends," our then 5-year-old explained. "Sometimes in the kitchen, sometimes in the bathroom!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when while driving in the car with your diabetic child, a radio show asks listeners to call in with the answer to the question, "What do parents most often say at their kids?" and your daughter answers, "Did you bolus?" See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
Can someone go in and out of the honeymoon? Sometimes our daughter needs no insulin for weeks, then needs daily shots for a few weeks, then no insulin, etc.
See the answer.
