Holiday help for diabetes

PEOPLE in Scarborough with diabetes are being offered a free holiday information pack by the Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust.

The pack contains tips on looking after diabetes in hot weather, carrying tablets and insulin to other countries and holiday insurance.

It also includes the trust’s Hospital Passport for people with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

When completed the passport contains details about how they manage their diabetes, medications, meals and any allergies, so people have the record with them if needed.

Just contact the Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust on (01604) 622837, email or write to IDDT, PO Box 294, Northampton, NN1 4XS.

The pack is free of charge.
