A Cow­ley res­i­dent who cares (un­like some!) WE are ask­ing peo­ple who are af­fected by di­a­betes to send us their prac­ti­cal ‘top tips’.

The tips will be used to cre­ate the first ever book for peo­ple liv­ing with di­a­betes, writ­ten by peo­ple with di­a­betes.

It is called ‘100 things I wish I’d known about liv­ing with di­a­betes’ and will be a free book for any­one af­fected by the con­di­tion.

Read­ers who are liv­ing with Type 1 or Type 2 di­a­betes, or who live with some­one else who does, will know about the ev­ery­day hur­dles that peo­ple liv­ing with the con­di­tion are best placed to of­fer tips around over­com­ing. There are a wide range of top­ics which could be cov­ered by a top tip – trav­el­ling, hol­i­days; driv­ing, sex and re­la­tion­ships, diet and fit­ness, school or work or fam­ily – in­clud­ing rais­ing chil­dren with Type 1 di­a­betes. Please keep your tips short – one or two sen­tences – make sure and that they of­fer help­ful ev­ery­day so­lu­tions as op­posed to med­i­cal ad­vice.

If some­one’s tip gets used in the book, their name will be pub­lished in the book and their tip could also be used to pro­mote the book on TV, in news­pa­pers, online and in other mar­ket­ing ma­te­ri­als.

So it’s im­por­tant that any­one who sub­mits a tip is sure they are happy
