MANY of your readers will have diabetes and we have found many people feel they do not have enough information to understand and manage their condition, especially those with Type 2 diabetes.
One of the most important pieces of advice people are given is to eat a healthy diet, but unfortunately this is often where the advice stops.
People are then left wondering what a healthy diet is, for someone with diabetes. The Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust's April edition of our quarterly magazine, Type 2 and You tries to answer this question with simple information about everyday foods.
Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition, so some people eventually do need to be treated with insulin.
For people with Type 1 diabetes and those with Type 2 diabetes taking insulin, our April newsletter offers more in depth information and news on the latest developments in diabetes.
We are happy to send your readers both of these publications free of charge, in addition to our booklet Understanding Your Diabetes.
We are always here with a listening ear to offer support and understanding. Readers just need to call 01604 622837, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or write to IDDT, PO Box 294, Northampton NN1 4XS.
