Sir - Easter is early this year and suddenly there seems little time to prepare for the Easter Bunny coming.

Please spare a thought for your readers who have diabetes.

Many people, especially parents of children with diabetes, struggle with the idea of how to manage the extra pressure of the 'forbidden' chocolate being everywhere.

Insulin regimes for both adults and children with diabetes do allow the odd treat of chocolate, but how do people with diabetes resist temptation at Easter? As a parent how are you supposed to keep saying no to a child when chocolate eggs are everywhere you look?

IDDT has put together some Easter Tips to help people with diabetes deal with Easter.
