New This Week
- We're rolling out a new, updated logo and artwork for our conferences.
- Last week's poll asked readers how they dispose of sharps at home. This week's poll asks our readers if their family experiences discrimination because of diabetes.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Taking Control of Your Diabetes, 4th Edition by Steven V. Edelman, MD.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Our youngest group of campers at Camp Koral Kids in Coral Springs, Florida are 5 and 6 years old, but have the wit and wisdom of adults. Diabetes education is an important component of camp and we try to incorporate it in all we do. When quizzing the little ones on diabetes concepts we get all kinds of great responses, but the best one by far was their response to the question of what we check for when our blood sugar is above 240. Their group response was "PEE-tones"! Kind of sums it all up, huh?
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when, while driving in the car with your 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:
The endocrinologist recommended my son use mini-glucagon to help maintain his blood sugars during a 3 mile run. Is this the best way to prevent a low? He usually reduces his basal insulin and consumes extra carbohydrates, but still goes low.
See the answer.
