- The Featured Book of the Week is Type 1 Teens: A Guide to Managing Your Life With Diabetes by Korey Hood, PhD.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My two sons, ages 9 and 7, share a bedroom. The 9 year old is a type 1 diabetic. As usual, I did the 2 a.m. BG test. I found him to be 97 so I ran downstairs to get some juice. While I was busy prodding and pushing him to get awake to drink it, I realized my boys had - for fun - switched beds for the nights and I was testing the child without diabetes and trying to give him juice! Thankfully, as bleary-eyed as I was, I figured it out :)
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your child learns to count backwards before learning to count forwards--they learn this from watching their meter countdown. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My daughter had elevated blood sugars when at the ER three times for kidney infections, but testing was negative. Could she be in the early stages of type 1?
See the answer.
