Why does DUK fail to give people with type 1 full details of the risks associated with nocturnal hypoglycaemia? In a recent issue of Balance magazine it stated that children ‘usually’ wake when hypo when we know they don’t and in a subsequent magazine it was talking about the closed loop, why would we need the closed loop if everyone woke up? I can understand not frightening people but you are supposed to be ‘the’ charity for people with diabetes (regardless of type) and yet you fail to give give good factual information. I also find that you trivialise diabetes in children and make it seem as though it can be easily managed, how are you going to ensure that your website reflects the complexities of dealing with type 1 and gives good up to date advice?
