- For some time now, we’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, we’d like to invite you to become part of dQ&A’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 readers how much of a financial burden paying for diabetes supplies places on their family. This week's poll asks our CGM users how often they dose insulin based on their CGM reading.
- The Featured Book of the Week is The Insulin Express by Oren Liebermann.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Our 4-year-old son Willy, who was diagnosed when he was two, has been judging how low or high his blood sugar is feeling. One day I asked him if he was feeling like his blood sugar was low or high. He held his hand at his shoulder level and said, "I think it's about here."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you find yourself arguing with your daughter because she WON'T eat her ice cream before she goes to bed! See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
After an up and down night of blood sugars, my adult daughter could not communicate with me, as if her brain were malfunctioning. She returned to normal after several hours and hospital tests. Is this common in long term diabetics with erratic blood sugars?
See the answer.
