SIR – For many of us there have been indulgences over Christmas with a little too much food and not enough exercise. The first few months of the New Year are a time for getting things back on track – eating more healthily and taking more exercise.

Many of your readers will have diabetes, so getting back on track is particularly important for them, whether they have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. They have to manage their medications, diet and exercise to stay well.

As a charity for people with diabetes, we have put together some helpful information leaflets, including our booklets, ‘Exercise, Blood Pressure And Your Heart and Everyday Eating, which provides inexpensive menus for breakfast, lunch and evening meal for 28 days to help people to know what they can eat, rather than what they can’t!

We are happy to send your readers these publications free of charge and a free pedometer, while stocks last. Call (01604) 622837, e-mail or write to IDDT, PO Box 294, Northampton.
