    Hi Everyone!

    I hope you are all well and having a nice weekend!

    Since April 2018 the UK Government passed the Drinks Industry Levy Regulations 2018, which saw drinks products in the UK dramatically cut the amount of sugar they contained. Furthermore Health campaigners have said that the Regulations should also be extended to cover chocolate, sweets and other confectionery items containing the highest levels of sugar and the Public Health England Program is aiming for a 20 per cent reduction of sugar by 2020.

    Since these regulations have been put into place, I have found it exceedingly more frustrating to buy and pack my work bag with hypo supplies for my extremely active job, so was looking to help identify if other Type 1 diabetics are having issues with finding hypo recovery food and beverage products and if so I'm going to be using the data gathered to help the Diabetic community

    So was looking to see whether I could post my Survey on here to help me get some feedback?

    Many thanks

    @Jaylee will be able to advise you. I do think you would get more answers if you post in the T1 Section or the Diabetes Discussions Section, though. Good Luck.

    For clarity - all research surveys need approval there is a form that has to be filled in explaining the purpose of the work and approval comes from head office not from the moderation team.
