we then take a six-minute rest (which

again is adaptable) and once recovered,

we repeat the circuit all over again."

Stephenson-Grey took part in the

London 2012 Olympics Games torch

relay and still trains (prior to lockdown) at

the track and in the gym. The exercises

she does include standing squats, pressups, the

plank, lunges, the superman

pose (when the opposite arm and leg are

stretched out) and sit ups.

She says, "This type of fitness session

is inspired by the type of session I've often

done with my training group over the

years, particularly at the start of the winter

or summer training season, as it helps

build strength and fitness as a foundation

to move onto other things. It works the

arms, legs and core areas throughout

the session, which can be helpful when

training a lot, because no one area is

necessarily over-worked or strained."

The home workout videos have been

accepted by many in the community.

She adds, "I'm sharing what training

sessions work for me. Please remember

that you know your own fitness, health

and diabetes best. Seek medical advice

if you are concerned about undertaking

physical activity."

A medical reportage website,

Medscape, covered this news in

its story, 'Transformational' Shift

in Diabetes Care. In that it stated,

'Real-time continuous glucose

monitoring (rtCGM) will be offered

to all adults and children living

with Type 1 diabetes, following

updated recommendations from the

National Institute for Health and

Care Excellence (NICE). In addition,

'flash monitoring' with intermittently

scanned glucose monitoring devices,

previously only available for certain

patients, has been expanded to

anyone with Type 1 diabetes and

to adults with Type 2 diabetes on

insulin therapy.

"Patients will now have a choice

in picking the technology that is

right for them, in discussion with

their diabetes team," NICE said. It

estimated that over 250,000 Type 1

patients would benefit, and that the

need for finger prick testing would

be reduced by up to 50%.

Professor Partha Kar along

with many others within the NHS

have made consistent, scientific

arguments backed up by statistics

to show the benefits of diabetes for

many, if not most, users. However, in

another article, Medscape addressed

the fact that 'Access to Technology

[a] 'Huge Issue' in Diabetes

Treatment.'

The fact is that these changes

announced by NICE will not be

enough by themselves to guarantee

that all who need it have access to

the technology, argues Partha Kar,

MD, national specialty advisor in

Diabetes for NHS England and a

consultant in Diabetes Medicine at

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.

"For those of you who don't

know the data, let's make it very

simple," he said speaking ahead of

the announcement at the opening

Plenary session of the Diabetes UK

Professional Conference 2022 in

March 2022. "To put it as starkly

as possible, we do know CGM is

incredibly important for children

living with Type 1 diabetes, [yet]

a black child has got half the

chance of a white child to receive

the technology. That, under no

circumstances, is acceptable in the

NHS, which is supposed to be free to

all. Whether it's structural problems,

whether it's individual problems, I

just want that gap to be closed."
