    Why we have to keep working and spreading the word.

    No this is not another rant about another place. In some ways for me the other place is like a car crash. You know when you are driving down a motorway, the traffic slows down, and the big signs say Accident ahead. You know wrecked cars will upset you, but you just can't not look. I read this today. BTW Indy well done for posting Fergus' video up. One other point, I am chuffed some new members have joined this forum, and very grateful to people who have been with us from the start. I hope all the members continue to post here, but more importantly, I hope members of both forums continue posting in the other place. We don't get many people joining in trouble, but this person needs help. Type two's on insulin have up to three times the mortality rate as a non insulin using type two (dose dependent) let's hope this person is reporting soon the insulin has been dumped. We all know there is only one way that is ever going to happen, and let's hope it is not too late. One thing is for sure, it's never too late to try and improve outcomes and this person sounds keen to me, and has come to realise, you can't keep rolling the dice with diabetes.

    "Not a success story but I just want to say how inspired I am with all of your stories. I am going low carb from tomorrow and actually looking forward to it, doing my shopping list later.
    I have been Type2 for about 10 years now and I am a bad diabetic with no control, or should I say I had no control until March this year when I was put on Byetta and then May this year started on Insulin. This is when I have realised I have to take this serious and get my head in gear.
    Heres hoping that in a few weeks I will be posting a success story

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    If there are too many success stories, it will end up being locked or deleted.
