Never thought I'd be writing this editorial, but here we go.

As ever, there's lots of news in this issue and plenty on

food too. It's heartening to know there's so much going

on in diabetes care, and that despite food sometimes

challening our blood glucose control, in the main it's something we can enjoy.

Then along came the coronavirus as as I write this it's been a couple of weeks

since people with diabetes were told they were 'high risk' and must expect

to self-isolate for 12 weeks. I'm obviously no expert on the coronavirus or

the respiratory illness it causes, Covid-19. The NHS (and the BBC) have both

stepped up to the challenge as national public health service and public

broadcaster and social media has come into its own, spreading the word that

locking down means saving lives. It might be a bit of a bore, but it could be a

lot worse. As a digital publication, we'll keep doing our thing. We have a few

pages on things to do with staying safe at home in a feature on p.18. In other

news, a new 'artificial pancreas' app has been launched, and we talk to the

makers of the soon-to-be-release sugarBEAT sensor for T2s. Congrats also to

the chaps at Carbs&Cals, celebrating 10 years since starting the idea up. All of

these initiatives took perseverance. And persevere is something we all must do

for the near future. Stay home, and stay well.

Editor's comment

We talk to the CEO of Nemaura

Medical, the company soon to bring

out the T2 sensor, sugarBEAT.
