Going for gold!

Diabetes Voice is so named because it is intended to give a voice to people with diabetes across the world. In this special issue we have tried to interpret our mission very literally and many of our pages are filled by people’s own accounts of their life with diabetes. The fact that diabetes means different things to different people comes across clearly in these accounts – and reading between the lines of the inspirational articles we feel privileged to be publishing this time, it is also clear that for everyone living with the condition, diabetes is always, to some extent, something of a struggle. The inspiration comes from how robustly all our authors, in different ways, have addressed that struggle – and won.
