New This Week
- Last week's poll asked readers how often they check blood sugars during the night. This week's poll asks our readers if they are concerned about the future cost of or access to insulin and diabetes care products.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Diabetes Through the Looking Glass: Seeing diabetes from your child's perspective by Dr Rachel Besser.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My daughter came home from kindergarten and told me that her teacher almost sent her up to the nurse that day because she felt low. "Almost?" I asked (a little concerned). "Yeah," she said, "I was trying to tell her my CRAYON was low, and hard to color with. She didn't understand!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you grab the meter after cutting YOURSELF - that big drop of blood's just too perfect to waste. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
I've had type 1 for 19 years. I have developed posterior subcapsular cataract in both eyes. How long until this affects my vision? Are the results of cataract surgery for people with diabetes generally favorable in the absence of diabetic retinopathy?
See the answer.
