Margaret Whitehead and her daughter Penny are Timesulin fans that have been with us pretty much since day 1. When Margaret shared her enthusiasm for the simplicity and control that Timesulin gives them both with our team I asked her to write a blog post, which she graciously has done. I share it with you below – thank you for being Timesulin fans, Margaret and Penny! Here’s to many more years of health and diabetes peace of mind.

Between us we have been Type 1 diabetics for the past 115 years! I was diagnosed in 1943, aged 4, and Penny, my daughter, was diagnosed in 1968 at the age of 7.
Penny has fared less well in that she lost her sight in one eye whilst at University and, because of somewhat poor control at times during the following years, her eyesight has deteriorated further. However, she has managed to cope very well with a high powered job in the West End of London, bring up 2 sons, and keep a roof over their heads.
In my earlier years I’ve stood as a Local Council candidate, which really tested my stamina and perseverance and never having driven a car, it really tested my walking capabilities too! With my husband, Stuart, we’ve visited New Zealand and Australia twice, and stopped off at various heavenly places to break up the journeys. Apart from my blood monitoring machine not working after going through one of the airports’ scanners, the trips were uneventful on the medical side. I retired at the age of 60 from a part-time secretarial post which was enjoyable and fulfilling.
Having seen the Timesulin caps on the Internet both Penny and I decided to try them and they have been so reliant, easy and informative in our every day care. We both recommend them highly and I’ve already sent an email to Diabetes UK about our complete satisfaction with them I’ve also told a diabetic group I used to belong to about them and they were very interested.
