    Our youngest group of campers at Camp Koral Kids in Coral Springs, Florida are 5 and 6 years old, but have the wit and wisdom of adults. Diabetes education is an important component of camp and we try to incorporate it in all we do. When quizzing the little ones on diabetes concepts we get all kinds of great responses, but the best one by far was their response to the question of what we check for when our blood sugar is above 240. Their group response was "PEE-tones"! Kind of sums it all up, huh?
  6. You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your husband comes in and asks your child what they are up to and they respond "176" instead of "playing." See more parent humor.
  7. Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week

  8. The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
    My daughter was put on high dose estrogen pills for severe menstrual bleeding. Her blood sugars then went up, as did her A1c. Was this an appropriate treatment for a teen with type 1? Blood work also shows her AST is elevated from taking the pills. Do I need to worry about liver damage?
