With dairy products derived from

goats gaining in popularity, it

stands to reason that there's an

increased availability of goat meat.

Would you try it? P.26.

There's one thing about watching and reporting on the diabetes care arena,

it teaches you patience! Much of what I report on is new, sometimes it's

technology that's coming soon or under development. Recently I've been

contacted by readers wanting to get hold of FiASP or Libre, or Eversense implantable

CGM and not having any success. The fact is that it takes a good old while for these

to be taken on by local CCGs and even longer to actually get them on regional

formularies (i.e. on prescription). My aim is to keep readers informed, and give them

a glimmer of hope that things really are getting better, but I can fully understand that

this sometimes brings with it frustrations when it remains 'coming soon'. The good

news is that in this issue there is an overview of CGM technology as new products

(even implantable ones) become available in the UK and their reach being extended

beyond the current focus on people using insulin pumps, out into the wider diabetes

community. There's news about Abbott's FreeStyle Libre being made available on

the NHS, and Eversense getting a CE mark in Europe, which means it can now be

distributed. It's going to take time for these to actually get into people's hands (in fact

on or in arms), but knowledge is power, so being aware will help you get what you

need in the future.
