    It is with great sadness, I have to inform our readers and friends, the death of our friend Graham. Co-founder and regular poster on this forum, he was a stalwart promoter of the low carb lifestyle, he helped countless diabetics to a safer place. Graham was a kindly man and a gentleman, that being said, he had no time for fools, liars and spreaders of false information. His highly critical posts on forums and blogs, regarding the charity Diabetes UK and on the junk food payola system dietitians, was ruthless, and justifiably so.

    No one realised more than Graham, the best way to control type two diabetes, was by way of dietary changes. His posts on here and elsewhere, highlighted the ineffectiveness of diabetes drugs, and the huge money making racket type two diabetes has become.

    Graham succumbed to a stroke, and died peacefully with his family around him this week aged 74. He was active and happy to the end, after over ten years with diabetes, he had no diabetes complications whatsoever. In short, Graham was one on the finest men Jan and myself have ever known. We know he will rest in peace, he was one of the good guys, and will be forever missed, by his great family and many friends.

    Eddie and Jan

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 !

    i am very saddened to hear of Graham's death, he was a kind and helpful friend on this forum. I shall miss him a lot.
    Thankyou Eddie and Jan for letting us know that he had finished his battle with health problems too soon, but when we get iinto our 70s there are no guarantees as we all know well.

    My sympathies go out to his family and friends.
    Rest in peace Graham.

    regards
    Derek

    Very sad to read this. A strong character who, as Eddie says, didn't suffer fools gladly but was always there to offer help/advice to those who asked.
    R.I.P Graham.....

    I have only a few words and not due to Apathy,but after seeing this post I feel truly numb as this is all wrong as I really felt Graham would outlive the lot of us truth be told...The days I wasn't on this site before I knew it became months and thus,I never got to properly thank him for being one of the few that believed in me despite me being a complete bellend at times and especially in the early days and I'll NEVER forget that and in my opinion,for what it's worth,the world is a much sadder place with him now gone...I will forever miss his wit and his wisdom and Eddie,Jan et al,I know how close you were to Graham and I am deeply sorry for the loss you must feel as well as Graham's family and god only knows how hard it was for you having to post about his unexpected death...It is 6.54 am,New years day 2019 currently and I'm now going to have a drink of JD and say "Cheers" to Graham...Much Love...Paul x
