We were delighted to report that Jenny
Hirst, founder of the IDDT diabetes charity,
had been made an MBE. Also in the
news was more evidence linking Type 1
diabetes to the rotovirus stomach bug, and
the launch of the Cellnovo insulin pump.
The feature assessed some current apps
available to help with diabetes control,
including an interview with the mother of
a teenager with diabetes whose Cook and
Count Carbs app seem invaluable for a
concientious cook in the kitchen. Making
Carbs Count was about courgettes in all
their green glory and there was a one-page
food special on edible flowers.
