Despite what we're all dealing with in these extraordinary

times, it's been a treat to be able to focus on the great

freebies, advice, support and services being made available

to the diabetes community right now. Get access to BD

and Me from injection specialists BD. Or give Roche's mySugr app a go for free

during the coronovirus See our overview on p. 21. The rest of the issue has a

lot of KIT in it. In particular there's an interview with the President of Dexcom,

Kevin Sayer, about the next sensor - the G7 - due to be released in 2021, and

it's had quite a redesign, read all about it on p.8. Then, on p.26, Prof. Nick

Oliver from Imperial College London introduces the Accu-Chek Solo, Roche's

new micropump (or patch pump). This has been designed around improving

the experience of those who use pumps, so it's easier to use and more

comforable than most of its competitors, being less likely to cause contact

dermatitis (plaster rash). I just love reporting on how things are improving and

how companies are listening to us, those who use their products, refining them

for a better user experience. At least we all have that to look forward to in the

future. Have a go at Medtrum's new TouchCare Slim sensor with 50% off for a

short while only, and apply for one of three packs of Carbs & Cals Flashcards.

Plenty to be getting on with!
