DIABETES FOCUS MAGAZINE

SADA produces a quarterly magazine which is free to its members.  Diabetes Focus covers topics such as:

  • Up-to-date news on diabetes and how to manage it
  • Real-life stories of how other people cope
  • Practical tips on day-to-day problems
  • Dietary news and exciting tasty recipes for healthy lifestyles
  • Progress in research
  • Activities of the Association

The Diabetes Focus Magazine is available on cassette to members who are experiencing poor sight or blindness.  Recordings are done by Tape Aids for the Blind.  For further information in this regard, please contact  Tape Aids for the Blind Tel:(031) 309-4800.

DIABETES does not mean the end of a normal lifestyle.  Knowing how to manage it day by day will keep you healthy.

You will need to learn about healthy eating, about exercise, monitoring your blood sugar levels and new medication, as well as how to manage the challenges of daily living with diabetes.

We at SADA want to encourage and assist you to learn as much as possible about your condition so that you will be able to take care of yourself.

SADA needs to raise funds to support all these activities.  We receive no government help and rely entirely on voluntary subscriptions and donations.  SADA needs your support.
