New This Week
- Friends For Life 2017: A new perspective.
- Thriving Together: Children with Diabetes Friends for Life Orlando 2017.
- Beyond Type 1 at Friends for Life.
- For some time now, weâ€™ve had a great working relationship with dQ&A, a diabetes research company based in San Francisco. dQ&A stands for Diabetes Questions and Answers, and they deliver feedback from people with diabetes to the companies that provide our medications, devices and care. They work with pretty much everyone in the diabetes field and have presented several times at Friends For Life. More importantly, their survey results have been instrumental in bringing new diabetes technology to the market.
Today, weâ€™d like to invite you to become part of dQ&Aâ€™s research process - they are looking for more families to take part in their quarterly feedback surveys. This is a great way to make sure that your voice heard by the leaders of diabetes care companies.
dQ&A will make a small donation to Children With Diabetes for every family that signs up, as well as compensating you for time you spend taking their surveys.
Please give this your consideration. If you wish to sign up and join the dQ&A Research Panel, visit this link.
- Last week's poll asked our CGM users how often they dose insulin based on their CGM reading. This week's poll asks readers how often they take their mealtime insulin after they eat.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Bright Spots and Landmines: The Diabetes Guide I Wish Someone Had Handed Me by Adam Brown.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
I overheard the cutest thing while we were at a diabetes walk. Emily was walking in front of me with my 6 year old nephew. I was listening to them talk. He said to her, "Em, why are we walking around this place anyway?" I heard her tell him, "We are walking to find a cure for diabetes." My nephew said, "Well, where am I supposed to be looking for it?" I could have died laughing.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when the only thing worse than a substitute teacher is a substitute school nurse. See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
To stop fainting episodes when menstruating, my daughter was put on an oral contraceptive, which causes high blood sugars and weight gain. Is this a common phenomenon? Is there any other way to alleviate severe menstrual symptoms? And, are there long term hazards of being on the pill too long?
See the answer.
