Re: [IPk] seasons changing


When I worked for an insulin company there was a definite seasonal pattern
to the sales-higher in winter , lower in summer - could have been due to
more people being diagnosed around the start of school /university and/or
the relationship between diet and exercise being better in the summer months

Best wishes
