ISSUE 134 I

think that 10 years ago I was

doubtful that CGM technology

would become a reality, but it has.

I wonder what the diabetes world

will be like in another 10 years' time?

What I've referred to as the Holy

Grail is non-invasive blood glucose

measurement. That is an even

greater step in the right direction

for painless tracking that does not

even involve so much as an itchy

CGM patch. Farewell to sensor-site

irritation, some of these technologies

sit on the skin and 'taste' it for

glucose. We take a good look at

what's in development on p. 20.

For a look back in time, Pete

Davies, who has had T1 diabetes for

65 years, shared with us a video that

EDITOR'S COMMENT

he made with old (and I mean really

old) diabetes equipment. Not for the

faint hearted, be warned! See p.18.

From the past to the present,

and I chatted to Russ Johannesson,

CEO of Glooko, about what the data

transforming app is capable of (p.26).

Making Carbs Count is about the

mighty cashew nut - transpires that

they're not even nuts! Who knew?

Strange what you find out when

you start digging.... it includes a

scrumptious, nutty Thai salad recipe.

As ever, there's plenty of news

(in fact no less than eight pages of it

in this issue) showing how much is

being done out there to improve the

lives of people living with diabetes.

I hope you enjoy this issue.

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.
