Why may people with diabetes experience problems with their feet?

In a person with diabetes, sustained high blood glucose levels over a long

period of time can cause damage to the nerve systems in the body, including

those in your feet. 1

neuropad® tests for insuffi cient sweating which is an

early sign of nerve damage, putting feet at risk of

ulceration. The pad starts off blue and should turn

completely pink after 10 minutes' application. If any blue

remains, this indicates that your feet are not producing

enough sweat (anhydrosis) - medically, this is known

as sudomotoric dysfunction. 2

while only 39% feel there are healthier

options available giving consumers a

choice of which product to buy.

The study also showed that the most

effective channel for helping consumers

make more informed decisions is through

healthcare professionals. As many as 49%

of consumers claim GPs are influential in

their food choices, while 48% claim the

NHS is important. Younger consumers

tended to be affected by a wider variety

of influencers, including their family.

Stuart Grant, Head of Consumer

Research at Impact Research believes

that one solution lies in greater clarity, "The

food and drink industry needs to be more

transparent in its messaging, otherwise it

will remain outside consumers' "circle of

trust", creating a barrier to brands moving

towards healthier products and thereby

meeting shoppers' changing needs and

expectations."

The perhaps unexpected origins of

several of our biggest (or at least most

well-known) UK confectionery companies

was referenced by Roger Lewis, writing

in The Telegraph, Roger Lewis - while

reviewing the book, The Angry Chef by

Anthony Warner - noted that, "healthy

foodstuffs were connected with matters

of the spirit in the 19th century. Fry's,

Cadbury and Rowntree were Quaker

companies, part of the temperance

movement. Their ambition was to get

people munching chocolate instead of

boozing. They weren't to know about a

future obesity epidemic."

The Angry Chef himself meanwhile

says that, "today's bizarre nutritional

schemes recall the Victorian cordials and

elixirs, and leave many members of the

public struggling to know what to believe."

Another case of bad information.

Dr Laura Corr, consultant cardiologist

at the Lister Hospital in London, speaking

in a report on SKYNews last year said, "I

think the problem is working out how to

eat healthily has just become so incredibly

complicated. So many patients I see way

that they are just bewildered by it. Food

labels list carbohydrates separately from

sugars but does not tell you what it's doing

to your body, and that's the critical thing.

Carbohydrates and sugars are not the

same thing. Carbohydrates include fibre,
