More please!

We then asked which topics you'd like

us to cover. By quite a margin, the two

most requested topics were for weight

loss for Type I diabetes and weight loss

for Type 2 diabetes. Then came education

programmes about diet and diabetes,

followed by phone apps to track blood

test results. In joint fourth place were

The Glycaemic Index, The Glyceamic

Load and mobile phone apps to count

carbs. Joint fifth were more lifestyle and

wellbeing features along with how to

undertake exercise / sport when living

with diabetes. And last but not least, more

on counting carbs.

Guidance on guides

When asked whether or not you'd be

interested in Desang doing a series

of guides, 32% said yes, 24% said it

depends on the subject matter, 10% said

Our survey asked, do you want a news

digest from Desang? A quarter of those

who responded (24%) said yes; 22%

said probably; 8% said unlikely; 3%

said definitely not. About 10% percent

said they were interested in features

being highlighted so they could read

them if they'd missed them in the

past (35% = no response). Almost

no one wanted a daily news digest,

9% said weekly, 7% said three times

a month, but a whopping 40% said

once a month (week two would be the

digest, week four would be the regular

magazine), while 8% said a flat no, with

35% no responses. As many as 70%

said they would not want to pay for a

news digest, although and 7.5% said

they'd pay £4 a year,14% said they'd

pay £6/year and nearly 10% said they'd

pay £20/year.

As a result of your feedback, we've

started a free monthly news digest

service, the first of which came out

in mid-January (and we're making a

start on the guides!).


UPDATE PROFILE the happy just to stick with the magazine

(36% had no response). When asked if

he might pay for guides there was a clear

response (30%) that the preferred method

would be a donation payment button, so

someone could pay according to how

useful they found the guide. When asked

about a quarterly print magazine 20%

were interested, 28% were not sure, 53%

were not interested. When asked about a

podcast from Desang 22% said yes, 45%

said not sure, 34% said no.
