New This Week
- Last week's poll asked our readers who drive how often they check their blood sugar before they drive. This week's poll asks our readers if their child with type 1 has a 504 plan at school.
- The Featured Book of the Week is The Little Red Sports Car by Eleanor Troutt, illustrated by J. Chris Price.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
We were walking along with some friends. My daughter Corie, age 12, dx at age 2, was wearing her insulin pump on her hip. I was holding hands with a younger child in the group (Cole age 6) who has a little thing for Corie. He saw the pump site. I asked him if he knew what it was. He replied, "Yes, that is where you plug her in for her energy."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you travel with as much food as you do baggage! See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
My toddler, whose father has diabetes, has intermittent high blood sugars, but blood work for diabetes was negative. Should I continue to monitor him?
See the answer.
