- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My 5 year old daughter woke one morning low, so I gave her a couple of glucose tabs to suck on while I prepared breakfast. She decided to go upstairs to wake her aunt who was visiting for the weekend. She woke her aunt and showed her the glucose tabs in her mouth. Her aunt asked her jokingly if she had candy for breakfast every morning to which my daughter replied, "Only on the mornings mummy says 'Jesus Christ.'"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you go out to dinner and your child accidentally asks for A1C sauce for his steak instead of A1 sauce. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
Will an MRI with contrast affect my son's kidneys? He has had no kidney issues so far after 20 years with type 1.
See the answer.
