New This Week
- The Jeff Hitchcock Addendum: Where type 1 diabetes shines.
- Last week's poll asked readers how much of a financial burden paying for diabetes supplies is for their family. This week's poll asks readers if they or their child was in DKA at diagnosis.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Help With The Hard Stuff by Lauren W. Tolle, PhD, and William T. O'Donohue, PhD.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My son James has had diabetes since he was 14 months old. I attend a diabetes support group and the subject came up of giving the child with diabetes control over their diabetes. One example they gave was to have the child decide where they wanted their shot (e.g., arm, stomach, thigh, buttocks). The next morning I asked James, who was 3 at the time, "Where would you like your shot today?" James' response was, "IN THOMAS". Thomas is James' older brother. Thank God for James, he does keep us laughing!
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you go to tell the person in front of you that their pump tubing is hanging out, only to realize that it's the headphone wire connected to their iPod. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
The coach wants my teen son to "cut weight" to wrestle a certain opponent. I had my son explain that this was dangerous for him because of his diabetes. Can you elaborate on these dangers? My son has been forced to sit out matches because the coach thinks my son is being difficult.
See the answer.

- The ATG-GCSF New Onset Study is recruiting patients ages 12 to 45 within three months of diagnosis. If this is you or a member of your family, please enroll.
- PERL (Preventing Early Renal Loss in Diabetes) is a clinical trial for people with type 1 diabetes who have early signs of kidney problems. Our goal is to test a new way to reduce loss of kidney function using a safe and inexpensive medicine. We are seeking adults with type 1 diabetes to participate in our study.
- The T1D Exchange Living Biobank collects blood samples needed by the scientific community for type 1 research and stores additional samples for future use. Please join.
