Diabetes tips call
collection service for large or bulky items.
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
