Cru­cial dif­fer­ence

Matamata Chronicle - - News/opinion -

Oh what a dif­fer­ence a week makes.

It was with great dis­ap­point­ment that I read the ar­ti­cle about the lit­tle chil­dren who are striv­ing to get pumps to con­trol their di­a­betes.

Last week we read all about type 1 di­a­betes with a very de­tailed story about the pump and how it works; it was great.

This week we have, with the flick of a pen, five years work done by Rochelle Richard­son, who has talked to nearly ev­ery ser­vice group in Mata­mata to ed­u­cate the pub­lic about the dif­fer­ence be­tween type 1 and type 2 di­a­betes, turned into com­plete con­fu­sion through in­cor­rect edit­ing so it is very dis­ap­point­ing for ev­ery­one con­nected with di­a­betes. The chil­dren need­ing pumps are type 1 not 2 as quoted in last week’s pa­per. Signed, up­set nana.
