The purpose of this magazine is to bring news and information to people living with, or caring for, people with diabetes, with a particular emphasis on diabetes technology. While CGM sensors are a mini revolution in diabetes care, the fact is that old-fangled blood tests are here to stay. With luck more of us will get access to CGM technology, but in the meantime there’s a wide choice of blood glucose systems, so much that in this issue we have Part 1 of a feature on the relevance of ‘finger stick’ blood tests.
Plus, there’s loads more with an update on new diabetes meds (for Type 1 and 2s), Type 1 diabetic Daniel Blumer’s smartphone scales, and a look at a new online programme of module for educating about Flash Glucose Monitoring (with more to come on other diabetes technologies).
Then there’s a couple of pages on soon-to-arrive connected insulin pens. Oh, and Part 1 of another food story on summer drinks called What Sup? (See what we did there?). Enjoy!
