[IPk] Rioting

In other countries the diabetologists have played an essential part in improving diabetes care .

Recently the President of the Israeli Diabetes Assn [ BDA equivalent ]
organised a demonstration at the Israeli Dept. of Health .
Prof. Raz , many co-workers and diabetics each carried a large bag of sugar and poured them ceremoniously all over the entrance to the M of H in protest about inadequate funding for insulins in Israel .

Within weeks lispro was fully funded and made available to those wanting to use it .

Similarly , in France it is the diabetologists themselves who have fought for hospital budgets to include pumps and who have been key in getting acceptance of pump therapy .

It seems that the attitude in the UK is more conservative ; maybe we should try Dr. Pickup with a few bags of sugar on Downing Street !

Have a good weekend
