Hello, my name is Joanna, I am a Type 2 diabetic, I was diagnosed in March 2012 with an HbA1c of 7%. Since diagnosis I have researched all kinds of diets, supplements, exercise and any thing else that I could incorporate into my daily routine to help me control my condition. Four months after diagnosis I had another HbA1c that came back as 4.9%.

This week, we have another horrendous tale where total lack of awareness has caused a four-year-old girl to fall in to a diabetic coma.
