Dear members and friends,
We have great articles for you in the 2019 spring issue of Diabetes Focus. Several articles, including our patient profiles, focus on being positive and facing challenges while living with diabetes.
While others give valuable information to cut down costs, i.e. (Cost) effective blood glucose monitoring and Save (kitchen savings). We also hear about ways to plan for the future, with the likes of Retirement Planning and Life Insurance.I am currently attending the Hospital Association of South Africa 2019 Conference. One of my focuses is to encourage the doctors and hospitals to refer their newly diagnosed patients with diabetes to Diabetes South Africa, so that we can provide information, education and support.
My husband’s doctor did just this 30 years ago and the help we received over the years has been invaluable. Please, help us spread the word. Next time you visit your doctor, ask him/her if he refers his diabetes patients to us. We want to help.
Yours in Health
National Manager – Diabetes South Africa
