An interview with Professor John
Pickup, who is known as 'the godfather of pumps', looks back on
40 years of insulin pump progress
Sometimes I feel very lucky to be running this magazine. For this issue
I had the chance to have a good chat to a man who's spent his life in
the diabetes care arena, with much of it at the front-end of reserach
and development of diabetes technologies. For all that we might moan and groan
a bit about diabetes kit, as nothing's perfect, the fact is that a huge amount of time
and effort has been put into improving life with the condition. Wearable tech is now
coming into its own, but it all had to start somewhere, and John Pickup has been
there since the very start. He shares his memories - and his thoughts on the future
- in the feature on p. 18. There's quite a lot of news in this issue, with the charities
in the sector going great guns at the moment to raise funds and awareness of all
aspects of diabetes care (thanks to JDRF for the 20% off at Gusto restaurants, see
p.8). There's a mini-sharps bin covered on our KIT page (p.14), also food items on
black garlic ketchup, juices made from 'wonky' fruit (p. 12), a cookbook giveaway
(p.13), plus a Making Carbs Count article on seasonal and sweet Spanish Jerte
Picote cherries. We're back in September with an update on the insulin pump
arena in the UK as new products come on the scene. Happy holidays!
