changed her career path, gaving
people with diabetes an option
for 'diabetic clothing' so med-tech
could be accessed.P.16.

intolerance in the latest of our
Need to Know series. P.22.
Isuppose that everyone diagnosed with any form of diabetes
would like to be un-diagnosed. Some Type 2s may be able
to 'reverse' their diagnois. One way to help could be to
look into OurPath, a new form of coaching support from Roche
Diabetes Care (see p.26). However, at present, there is no way to
reverse or cure Type 1 but due to modern research, there are a very
lucky few who could get their diagnosis changed to being that of a rare form of genetic
diabetes. This is likely to affect only 1-2% of all T1Ds, but that could be around 3,000
people in the UK who could say goodbye blood tests and injecting/infusing, still taking
some medication, but not insulin. Read more with Sophie's story on p.10.
Another T1D, Natalie Balmain, tells us how her diagnosis lead to her designing a
clothing range, while David Smith, the father of a child with T1D, has also changed his
career in order to bring us Diabetic Supply, a new website. His story is on p.30. Get
up-to-date with other kit with Medtrum's diabetes solutions (a patch pump, CGM) on p.
20. Then there's Food News (p.8), info on a cookbook about a Japanese form of grilling
(p.34), and you can read about the 'marmite' of fruit -- the pineapple - on p.36.
