Fat tax will hit diabetics too

If a ‘fat tax’ is placed on soft drinks (MW last week) then people like me – Type 1 diabetics – will have to pay to recover from hypoglycaemia.

I am sipping a can of Coca-Cola as I type because my sugar levels have dropped and a small can is one way my diabetic nurses recommend Iget my sugar levels back up again. I would be a bit cheesed off if I now have to pay more to feel better.
