Of Continuing Interest
- The Teal Pumpkin Project helps make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy, including kids with food allergies. This is a great alternative to candy for kids with type 1 diabetes or celiac.
New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers about where their child checks their blood glucose while at school. This week's poll asks our readers what they use most often to treat hypoglycemia.
- The Featured Book of the Week is The Discovery of Insulin by Michael Bliss.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My son recently was ill and had returned to school. His blood sugar went extremely low and the rescue had to be called. This obviously caused quite a commotion at the school. That evening a mother called to say that her daughter was worried about my son and had reported "Mom, his blood sugar was so low it was down to his belly button!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your non-D child refers to all numbers as carbs - "I'm 3 carbs old!" See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
After a bout with strep a few weeks ago, my teen daughter has been having recurrent lows, despite decreasing her insulin. Various tests have been normal. What else could be causing the lows?
See the answer.
