Memcached PHP Sessions

I operate a website called TeenSpot.com and we are experiencing some
major growing pains. We have utilized memcached all over the site,
including storing sessions. I am not a developer by any means, but I
am the one who does the server management. Our developers were not
familiar with memcached before I told them. Like I said, we store our
sessions in memcached, but for whatever technical reason, we still
hit the database a lot (every page) to check that the user is still
logged in (or something).
Is there a better way to handle sessions, preferably where we
wouldn't have to hit the database so much? Is "session caching"
something that exists?
