Welcome to the My Diabetes My Way Newsletter for November 2016.
Keep Well in Winter
Keep well in the winter - be prepared! Illness can upset your blood glucose levels. Colds and flu may increase your blood glucose levels while vomiting & diarrhoea bugs can lead to low blood glucose levels. Take precautions and see your GP for a free flu vaccination this winter. If you do become unwell, see our "sick day rules" below.

My Diabetes My Way completed a major service upgrade earlier this month. We would like to apologise if this caused you delays in accessing your records but the changes will allow us to provide a much better service. We will be offering an enhanced level of support over the coming weeks and will be announcing the first major development in our December newsletter.
