diabetes information

Editor’s comment...

Y ou are not a number, but boy-oh-boy does it seem like it

sometimes. From your weight to blood tests, from the

times and frequency of clinic appointments and insulin

doses (if you’re on insulin), as diabetics we

live in a world full of figures. In our feature

in this issue we look at some of them to help

you figure out the ones you need to take

notice of. Meanwhile, as the year gets into

gear and, while we are in the midst of truly

wintry conditions, there’s plenty of news to

keep us up-to-date (and warm our hearts).

Some of it is also about numbers. As if often

the case, if a thing is not measured, how can

we assess it? As ever, there’s also a lot of

food news too including info on cereals, grains and even beans, all

of which have been cultivated for centuries, standing the test of

time. It’s good news then that all of them are good for the diabetic

diet. So tuck in!
