- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
When Marissa was home over the weekend, I got up to test her around 4 a.m. (she was staying up until 1:30 or 2:30 doing whatever in her room). Anyway, the one night, I picked up the strips, looked at the code on the meter saying 26 and said to myself, "Guess I'd better change the code since the vial says 50." In that split second, it dawned on me that the "50" I saw on the vial was the NUMBER of strips in the vial. Code 26 was written on the vial, too. It helps to be COMPLETELY conscious when testing our kids.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your three-year-old asks if he takes his medical identification bracelet off, will his diabetes go away. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
The endocrinologist indicated that my adolescent son will probably be no taller than 165 cm (5 feet, 4 inches). I heard that blood glucose control is more difficult when on growth hormones. Should we pursue the hormones? Are there other side effects?
See the answer.
