    Why not one for diebetic 2 too please

    • Type 2 diabetics can also sign up for one, there are just some elements that are specifically Type 1 (taking insulin immediately etc). You’re welcome to get one!

      • Pauline Pauline

        I think it’s a nice idea and I’m sure it will still be useful for type 2 diabetic like myself.

    How do you get a copy if you are already a subscriber?

    • Hi Nadine! If you click on ‘I want to receive communication from Abbott’ (the ‘yes please’ box), it will ask you to update your delivery details and update the system.

      • Sorry it is impossible to sign up for the free copy if you are already subscriber. Somehow keeps taking me back to the same page and then says too many sign up requests for this email address!

    When I click on link to order a free journal, it tells that I am already subscribed- is this gift only for new subscribers?
