Adventure D is a new sports-based
group set up for and by people
living with diabetes. This issue
includes a photo-essay (including the front cover image) of their
watery undertakings. p10. We're doing another issue on sport due to the
fact that several readers contacted us about
their experiences of handing diabetes and
doing sporting activities. From individual undertakings
(like the classic cycle ride from Land's End to John
O'Groats) to group pursuits, we have a collection of tales
to share here. There's also plenty of news, a tasty serving
of Food News as well as an update on current Kit too.
We wrap up this issue with an investigation into the food
value of all sorts of onions, which form the basis of so
many soups, stews and sauces. Chop chop everyone!
