ISSUE 131 W

hen I set this magazine

up, the point was to

share information and

talk about diabetes

'kit'. Back then (about a decade

ago), few people wore, or had even

heard about insulin pumps and

everyone was blood testing, with all

the rigmarole that entails (lancing

device, a lancet, tub of strips, blood

test meter). In this issue, it's thrilling

to see how diabetes tech is on the

move, we are all well on the way to a

better future with smaller, cleverer

devices that can help ease the burden

while also giving insights.

Not only that, as the diabetes

care landscape evolves, so must

relationships within it. There

has been a strong movement

EDITOR'S COMMENT

spearheaded by JDRF in the

United States to encourage all

manufacturers of all devices to allow

them to 'talk' to each other.

So, as part of the News section

you can read about Sanofi's deal

with Dario, and Dexcom's G7 getting

a CE Mark. Then on p.14 there is

Kit Report update on the ongoing

progress being made both in device

development and company takeovers

and partnerships. It's heartening

stuff. Like they say, every little helps

if it's heading in the right direction.

A story on common musculoskeletal

aches and pains on p.24,

might explain some of yours, if you

have any. Some are related to having

diabetes, some are not.

On p.12 there is news of a new

injection pen for helping someone

having a very low blood glucose.

Called Ogluo, it's easier to use than

previous solutions so help can be

given faster. Progress indeed.

The small Print

With our website and monthly online

magazine we aim to bring diabetesrelated

information to anyone who

wishes to read it. Our editorial sections

presently include kit, news, food news

and features. As far as kit is concerned,

we produce listings so you can then

choose what's best for your own

diabetes care. We are not necessarily

recommending products but bringing

you information about them.

We include global news stories

with a local focus on the UK and Irish

markets. Sources are supplied as often

as possible so you can go back and

read the original or fuller reports.

Features are on any and all aspects of

living with diabetes. We tend to focus

on new products and technological

advancements. Sometimes features

are themed specifically for T1D or for

T2D; you can pick what you want to

read about.

Adverts are supplied by

advertisers and we do not implicitly

endorse the suppliers or products

involved. If an item is sponsored,

such as the feature or news sections,

then it is written by Desang with

advertising banners associated with

the sponsor; the sponsor does not

have full editorial control but they

do have input. Advertorial is stated

as such - it will say 'advertisement

promotion' and may look like the

rest of the magazine's design but it

is written in collaboration with the

advertiser. They get their message

across but with advice and input from

Desang's writers and editors.

Trademark and Copyright symbols

are not included in editorial coverage,

only within adverts. These marks are

not necessarily of interest to readers

and impede the reading experience. If

we included them for every product

covered the pages would be a very

unappealing to read.

We aim to bring you information,

but it's your diabetes. Talk to your

medical team if you have further

questions or concerns. While

we report on products such as

supplements or glycaemic index and

carb-counting as part of diet, it is your

responsibility to find out more if you

need to.

We include coverage of all sorts of

foods - soft drinks, chocolate, booze -

as these are part of normal life. We are

not encouraging consumption of these

items, we are bringing you information

about them. You choose what you eat.

We'd include soft drinks as they can

come in handy for treating a hypo, not

necessarily as part of a diabetic diet.
