New This Week
- This Diabetes Awareness Month, we are celebrating diabetes Warriors everywhere. For every Warrior Call that is shared or posted Dexcom will donate $1 to Children with Diabetes and other charities supporting T1D. Just upload your best Warrior Call to Facebook or Instagram. It can be a photo, a look, a shout or a song. Tag @Dexcom, use #WarriorUp and raise awareness during the month of November. Learn more at Dexcom's Call of the Warrior Challenge and see our Tween Warrior Call and Elementary Warrior Call from Friends for Life Falls Church 2017.
- Share your story of forced non-medical switching at MyMedsMyChoice, a project of CWD.
- Last week's poll asked readers how often they check for ketones when they are sick and have an unexpected high blood sugar. This week's poll asks our parents about what they do if their child needs a new infusion set while at school.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Kids First Diabetes Second: Tips for Parents a Child with Type 1 Diabetes by Leighann Calentine.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Last week, Scott took Daniel and Jesse to Raceway Park in New Jersey to see drag racing, funny car races, etc. The other night, at about 11:15 pm, the house phone rings. I picked it up to hear Daniel say, "389." I said, "What did Jesse eat? Didn't the CGM alarm? What's wrong?" I'm kind of panicky. Daniel laughed and said, "Ma, what are you talking about?" I said, "A blood sugar of 389 is nothing to laugh about!" My brilliant son said, "Ma, I don't know what you're talking about. But Dad just filled up your gas tank at $3.89 a gallon."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your son without diabetes comes out of the bathroom at the age of 3 and announces that he thinks he has diabetes -- "Oh, no, I mean diarrhea!" See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My granddaughter lies about cheating with foods and has great swings in her blood sugars. She will not do her school work and does not care about anything. Where can we find help?
