- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
I had a dinner party and all my friends and family were there and their children. My three year old with diabetes would not eat the dinner that was catered -- she wanted to run with the other children. I had given her her Humalog already and was very worried that her blood sugar was going to drop. My mother took over to help get her to eat. As I stood up to check on something, I told my mom to "make sure she gets ALL the icing off of the cake first, then the cake, then the broccoli and then the chicken ... and don't let her fill up on broccoli before the cake!" You should have seen the looks on all our guests faces. They knew our daughter had diabetes but didn't know much about diabetes management. I looked at everyone staring with their mouths open and had to laugh.
- Last week's poll asked readers how they clean their fingers or alternate sites before checking their blood glucose. This week's poll asks readers how they think that type 1 diabetes will be cured first.
