ISSUE 127 When I first saw the

news about the

Royal Mint having

commissioned one

side of a limited edition 50p coin

in recognition of the centenary

since the discovery of insulin, I was

surprised. My grandparents used

to buy me the occasional special

50p piece. I must have a couple in a

drawer somewhere, as I never throw

anything out. Since finding out that

such a coin had been struck, I've

started to think it's rather wonderful.

Usually coins are minted about

people, objects or events. I think this

might be the first to represent what

many of us would just know as a

medication. I like how the designers

have to drill down to the core of what

EDITOR'S COMMENT

the coin will represent.

A separate subject that comes

across a lot in this issue is that of

time in range (TIR) which is fast

becoming the preferred way to

look at how well our control is

going, overtaking the old HbA1c

measurement. Brace yourself

- another acronym coming up

- it looks likely that the HbA1c

measurement might give way to

being referenced in a different

way, or at least become one of a

range of measurements that will be

called your glycaemic management

indicator (GMI). I think the best bit

about that is it's a much more userfriendly

term, at least it's easy to

comprehend.

Some things really are very tricky

to nail down, and food labelling is

one of them. In this issue there is

a little journey behind the current

'traffic light' system as well as a look

at a similar - and it seems superior -

scale called the Nutri-Score.

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.
