In a new series, we look at

new products before they come

to market. This issue, it's Abbott's

Freestyle Libre, not quite

CGM but so much more than

plain old blood testing, p.4. Sue Marshall

LIVING:

There's extra challenges for people

with diabetes when it comes to

taking part in sport. We take

a look at the highs and how to

avoid lows, talking to diabetics

and doctors on p10. Because I oversee this magazine, I often get

to hear of new products before them come

to launch. It can be frustrating knowing that

there's good stuff in the pipeline, but it can take a

painfully long time for it to get CE marks and other

licenses. In this issue we have a new featurette, 'Coming

Soon', where we look at something that's about to get to

market. This time it's Abbott's Freestyle Libre, which uses

'flash' glucose monitoring to generate a reading every

minute. Being more affordable than CGM, it's a technology

that could move from your wish list to your upper arm!

See p.4. In another new feature, we talk to someone about

their diabetes kit, and why they use it, on p.6
