Type 2 and You
In October 2009 we launched our new quarterly publication ‘Type 2 and You’ . This is in response to the increasing number of requests for information we have been receiving from people with Type 2 diabetes who are not using insulin or who are about to go on insulin. We are aware that our quarterly Newsletter is written for people who use insulin, whether they have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes so we hope that ‘Type 2 and You’ will be of help to people on diet only or tablets and diet.
Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition, so it may be that at some stage diet and tablets will not be sufficient to control blood glucose levels well enough, which means that treatment with insulin may be necessary. This will be a worry for many people and we hope that in future editions we will be able to include articles that can help people through this worrying time. We also hope that “Type 2 and You” will be able to give practical advice and information that will help people to manage their diabetes as well as possible.
Although they are separate conditions, there are many things that Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes have in common, such as the complications that can happen, so it may be that readers of our regular newsletter may find ‘Type 2 and You’ of interest as well. If you would like to receive ‘Type 2 and You’ on a regular basis then we will be more than happy to supply it free of charge. Just contact IDDT for more details.
