When the sun comes out, so do our flip-flops. Well,
mine don't as I don't have any, simply can't walk
in them, but summer footware means you might
want to take a look at your feet for an overhaul after a
winter in shoes and boots. Footcare really ought to be weekly
9f not daily) for people with daibetes. Our foot report on
p.14 looks at some of the more common problems that can be
taken care of at home. There's plenty of news in this issue,
including Diabetes UK's new 'mood tool'. This can be used
to help people talk about how they feel about their diabetes
when they go to clinic to help identify if additional support
is needed. There's a call to action on p.7 - please do our
reader survey so we can keep delivering more of what you
want. There's another survey on p.22 regarding a personal health
system called KALMOD, a tool for diabetics and their HCP in routine outpatient
consultations. Volunteers are being asked
to compete a pilot study and give feedback.
I've done it, it's rather fun.
