    So they want me to go on a study for a non existing condition  Rolling Eyes

    Generously they say my travel expenses would be reimbursed which will be a lot less than Panesars company get for each referral

    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 he had an amputation he'd sell one shoe on Ebay

    My vascular disease in clearly related directly or indirectly to my thyroid. There's more to it though, it's got a lot better a lot quicker this time around. My vitamin D is suitably high even without supplementing which is good but surprising, and I suspect all the K2 from my beloved cheese may also be a factor. Vacheron d'Or is much tastier than pills.

    Much to his credit IanD is still flying the LC flag at DCUK and taking on DUK  to boot, I'm at a loss though just why he's not been banned by the cherub given her hatred of low carbers   scratch Still I reckon since  DCUK is now promoting low carb she must realise the games up

    Good on him! He's at least got them thinking up new excuses.

    "We as an organisation use the best consensus of evidence to inform the dietary information we provide to people with diabetes."

    Utter bullshit.

    I corrected it

    "We as an organisation use the best consensus of dogma to inform the dietary information we provide to people with diabetes."

    "These are positions that have been informed by robust review of the research. "

    Our sponsors tell us to support HCLF

    Less than a decade ago Ian's post would have produced a wall of protests from the Phoenixes and their ilk. Good to see at least DCUK has become less aggressive.

    I suspect one of the long term reasons for my arteries crumbling is that I spent fifty years with trigs through the roof and low HDL, with BG spikes into a damaging range three or more times a day followed by insulin spikes. More than ten years of the opposite has helped but DUK don't seem concerned with anything but the poor maligned LDL, which is not only essential to life and the immune system but is now shown by numerous papers to actually IMPROVE longevity.

    We need to remember IanD followed the DUK dietary recommendations for years which led to the onset of diabetes related complications, he turned his life around when he discovered Fergus and went low carb and like we have he has had over eight years of of trouble free diabetes control.

    Meanwhile DUK continue unabated to push a low fat diet that promotes the likes of benecol and flora HERE

    Got an invite to another drug trial today  Rolling Eyes this time a letter from my surgery to take part in the VERTIS CV Study  the criteria for inclusion include: 


    • Diagnosis of T2DM in accordance with American Diabetes Association (ADA) guidelines 



    •  Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at the start of study participation of 7.0-10.5% (53-91 mmol/mol)  Shocked



    • On stable allowable anti-hyperglycemic agents (AHA) or on no background AHA for at least 8 weeks prior to the study participation



    • Body Mass Index (BMI) > or = to 18.0 kg/m^2



    • Evidence or a history of atherosclerosis involving the coronary, cerebral or peripheral vascular systems  Mad



    • There is adequate documentation of the objective evidence that the participant has established vascular disease such as investigational site's medical records, copies of such records from other institutions, or a letter from a referring physician that specifically states the diagnosis and date of the most recent occurrence of the qualifying event(s) or procedure(s).   wtf



    • Male, female not or reproductive potential, or female of reproductive potential who agrees to be abstinent from heterosexual activity or agrees to use or have their partner use 2 acceptable methods of contraception  Shocked


    Obviously I don't qualify, Synexus is running the study and again will only cover reasonable travel expenses so it would seem only my surgery and Synexsus will benefit financially

    " Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at the start of study participation of 7.0-10.5% (53-91 mmol/mol)"

    Yes there are STILL hardly any studies of well controlled diabetics, which would be enlightening as to how they succeeded, but doesn't sell profitable pharmaceuticals. I knew a boatload of diabetics mainly in the US but some in the UK who were excluded from studies for being "too well controlled". No-one considered studying WHY they were too well controlled. . . .
