We talk to the people behind

Input, a charity focused on helping

people with diabetes to get funding for the technology to help them

run their diabetes better. See p.14.S

o, it's been an interesting start to the year. The NHS

is to tax sugar in cafes in hospitals. Doctors in the

US are being told not to use the word 'diabetic', and

the UK now has 4 million of us (people with diabetes, that

is). When I first started this magazine, I polled the readers

to ask what terminology they wanted to be used. At the

time, the overwhelming preference was for 'diabetic'. I hope

that's not changed, as I call a spade a spade. Not calling

doing so helps people 'dodge' their diagnosis, in my view.

And nor do I view a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes as less

serious than being diagnosed as Type 1 before anyone gets

started on that one. In our regular Making Carbs Count

column, we report on the current global focus on pulses, but

don't forget that each type of pulse, from a beans and peas

to lentils have different carb counts, so check the labels!
