    Your observation that the website is produced by Novo reminds of the two identical letters I have received from Novo since switching to Levemir. Somehow Novo got wind of my switch along with my name and address and it gives me a bad feeling.

    I assume Novo learned of my switch from my doc. The letter contained harmless and useless pablum about being sure to follow the drug’s usage instructions properly. A small thing but a symbol of the inappropriate relationship between pharma and health care providers.

    I received a free sample of Levemir to try it and I suspect my acceptance of the vial constituted “permission” for my doc to provide Novo with my name and address.

    Corned beef and cabbage is really an American meal. In Ireland they eat bacon with their cabbage, and that bacon is more like the Canadian kind than ours. It’s yummy.

    That is so interesting how two different countries with different cultures can be so alike with a common thing like diabetes, thank you for your research, it was really entertaining.

    Hi Amy, thanks for a great post! Just to make things crystal clear, it might be worth reminding readers that Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are two separate countries, and the advocacy group for Northern Ireland is the NI region of Diabetes UK. Their website is independent.

    Hi I just came across your blog. I am doing some research about starting a diabetes blog.. I became interested in your entry about Ireland. My husband is a type 1 diabetic of 35 years and he is from Ireland..
    I really enjoyed reading your blog. My husband is also a writer and a published author.
