"Diabetes awareness and education"
Sharon Dale Wiggill, whose son has had diabetes for twelve years, has been the editor of for the last thirteen years. "Diabetes awareness and education is one of the primary functions of the organisation and the magazine helps people with diabetes to stay abreast of new developments in diabetes management and motivates them to eat healthy food and exercise.
"It is also important to help our readers feel that they are not alone and therefore we include uplifting stories about people who have succeeded in life whilst living with diabetes. We are looking to increase our circulation over the next year and grow to new heights to assist all South Africans with diabetes."
There are already an estimated two million South Africans with diagnosed diabetes and a further five to six million people who have diabetes, but who are unaware of it. For more about membership of Diabetes SA or the magazine, email .
