he new NICE guidelines,

regarding what diabetes

tech different people with

diabetes can access, are

going to be truly transformative.

Read in detail on p.10. Also, as an

addition to that, we have a KIT report

on three new (or improved) CGMs

that are coming our way soon, two

of which are likely to be available on

prescription from the NHS. See p.16.

It's fair to say that JDRF has long been

educating and lobbying for more

access to diabetes tech in the UK. We

take a look at its recent Pathway-toChoice

project on p.26, in our article

Making In-roads.

As we all know, technology is

not a 'cure', and nor is insulin. So,

as well as reflecting on the new

EDITOR'S COMMENT

guidelines allowing far greater access

to a wider choice of options on the

NHS, we also take a look at other

future possibilities. Can we improve

on insulin, could it ever be in some

sort of pill form? What progress

is being made in immunotherapy?

What about preventing, delaying or

even curing Type 2 diabetes? See our

article on p.18, The End of Insulin?

Then, picking up on a new but

growing science of stem cells and

gene editing, our article on p.20,

Gene Genie, looks at how far along

such techniques are as regards

treating Type 1 diabetes.

In the food section, Cheryl

Lythgoe of Benenden Health gives

her top tips for ten foods to improve

your diet, while our regular Making

Carbs Count column looks at the

wide range of vinegars and their uses.

including a recipe for home-made

cottage cheese.

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.
