Welcome to our March issue. Well we had a little bit of fun in lockdown 3, having decided to use some of the time on our hands to have a little revamp off the magazine’s design, having never attempting anything of the sort in the last 10 years since we first started publishing. The purpose of the redesign was to make it easier to read, easier to navigate and make it a little more modern. Sincerely hope you like it!

NEWS REPORT: Watch a video about how Elise Quarrington (pictured right) is training her dog, Logan, to sniff out and alert her when her blood glucose levels are dropping. That’s just one of the free online events presented in Abbott’s Wellness Festival. You are invited to take a look. MY DIABETES KIT: We chat to Charlotte Mitchell about her experience of diagnosis when she was 13, half her lifetime ago but recent enough to still be a very strong memory. She’s not let it hold her back and is looking forward to more travelling as soon as we’re all allowed.
Our COVER FEATURE is a general overview of which devices currently have alarms, alerts and reminders. This includes a quick romp around that they can do for you but also what to do if you’re feeling tired of using them. Finally,
yippee for springtime! Without using that much imagination, we wondered what ‘spring greens’ actually were, then delved into the leafy arena of kale and its darker cousin, cavalo nero. Includes a ‘big soup’ recipe from Riverford. Happy Eastertime!
