New This Week
- Last week's poll asked our readers who drive how often they check they blood sugar before they drive. This week's poll asks parents how soon after diagnosis they went out alone with their spouse.
- 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 granddaughter Paige, who is three, was recently in the emergency room because of a low blood sugar. The nurse was checking her blood sugars to make sure they were coming up. When her blood sugar got to 90, the nurse told the doctor, "She's 90." Paige hollered, "I'm not 90, I'm only 3."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your daughter wakes you up in the middle of the night and says, "Mommy, I'm beeping." See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
The endocrinologist recommended my son use mini-glucagon to help maintain his blood sugars during a 3 mile run. Is this the best way to prevent a low? He usually reduces his basal insulin and consumes extra carbohydrates, but still goes low.
See the answer.
