    On Sunday 14th June 2015, Diabetes.co.uk will be conducting a live Q&A with Dr. Partha Kar, Clinical Director of Diabetes at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.

    Dr. Kar has been a Consultant in Diabetes & Endocrinology since 2008; he took up the role of Clinical Director of Diabetes in 2009, and has held the position since. Dr. Kar’s interests lie in the design of diabetes care. The super six model – which he pioneered – won the Care Integration Awards 2012 and the Quality in Care in Diabetes Award 2012.

    It is no coincidence that Dr. Kar’s Q&A precedes diabetes week, the theme of which is patient care and support. On Sunday 14 June, Dr. Kar will be fielding questions from Diabetes.co.uk users on this topic.

    Dr. Kar will be answering questions between 7pm and 8pm (1900-2000) on 14th June 2015. If you have a question about the current state of diabetes care in the country, or a problem with your own personal diabetes care, or a query about the future of diabetes care in the UK, please feel free to post here or join in with the live Q&A at

    Hi, I have just been told a few days ago that I am type2. During the last 5 years I have had a number of heart problem that includes stents, and triple heart bypass, I am concerned that this recent addition to my health problems could have an unwanted effect on the old ticker. I would appreciate a point of view on this, many thanks.

    Hi

    Should diabetic patients be warned of diet products containing Aspartane and sweeteners?
    This is very recently come about for me. I have had health problems with T1 diabetes for 15 years and due to moving so many times I wanted to check my records.
    It has come to light that in 2003 there is an entry somewhere on the NHS record systems that was not filed correctly and I was not informed..."likely allergy to Aspartane"
    Since checking every product and stopping all sugar free products my health has 100% improved.

    I am really concerned, not for me but for all diabetics that are told- yes you can still have coke- but diet coke, yes, you can still have chewing gum- but sugar free gum.

    Do you think that consideration should be given by professionals who deal with diabetics that further warnings should be given.

    Diabetics are no longer told to have the specialist diabetic chocolate or "stute" diabetic jam... So why are they still being told to have other "sugar free" products?

    I myself have been diagnosed in 12 years with pernicious anaemia, fibromyalgia, neuropathy and had so many tests done and all - even the pernicious anaemia has been undiagnosed!!!!

    I would appreciate any thoughts as to why health professionals do not look at "diet" foods n drinks being a problem and advising patients to avoid these if they get problems such as pains that just get diagnosed as 'fibromyalgia" etc....
