Sometimes it’s more scream time than screen time, but for those who have access to diabetes tech that puts data on screen for them, improved control is the result. Not everyone has access to this tech yet — but hopefully in the future they will. Understanding how it can help you with control is key to using it well, and prompting those who do not have it to start asking for it. Improved control means fewer diabetes complications and therefore reduced cost in both human and health economics terms. Also in this issue there’s lots of News, plus Food News (more reasons to go out for a curry) and domestic bread bakers winning awards. And in Making Carbs Count the focus is on chick magnets and spring chickens as we look at the merits of chicken meat in the diet.
