    Douglas99 aka 'the bog brush' is at it again over at the flog. Evidently someone has told him at DUK diabetes is always progressive. As others have pointed out, if you follow the sort of dietary advice from the NHS, BDA and DUK diabetes is always progressive. Duggie over three years a diabetic and up to recently scoffing pot noodles and other complete junk, certainly knows how to prolong the agony. Over three years in and still fooling around with diets, the latest gimmick is the Newcastle Diet of starvation.

    Over time Duggie has grown on me, he is a sort of semi-amphibious version of Sid Bonkers. Lots to say but nothing of any use to the average diabetic. The $64000 question, would you take dietary advice from the bloke ? One thing cannot be denied, Duggie boy does liven up the flog. What a newbie makes of his antics can only be imagined, but make no mistake, Duggie has got future admin or mod written all over him.

    WTF was his 'progressive condition' thread all about I want to know! Cryptic questions and all this "I will give you their answer when you reply..." How? Is he high up at DUK? would explain a lot considering us low carbers are doing the exact opposite of what they advocate.

    DCUK Quote of the day.

    "The only way I can manage high-fat meals is to split-dose, taking one injection before food and another 2-3 hours after the meal is finished." Noblehead

    Noblehead is a master at leaving out the most enlightening part of his anti fats posts. That is he has said this week he eats up to 200 grams of carb per day "more at weekends" So, what he should have said was when I eat a high carb high fat meal I have to split-dose. For most low carb high fat eating diabetics using injected insulin this is not a problem and split doses are not usually required.

    Most enlightened diabetics and non diabetics know the worse possible combination for stable weight and blood glucose control is a high fat high carb meal. Nige may fool the newbies and non clued up but not those who are half awake.

    Link to quote here. http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/high-gi-but-high-fat.67990/

    Ah Eddie, you've forgotten about DAFNE who gives encouragement to eat these 'normal' high carb high fat meals. And you've also forgotten that we type 2's obviously don't know anything about the mysterious world of type 1 Wink Rolling Eyes

    Here it is again..'Don't blame the butter for what the bread did' Aaaaarrrggghhh it's the carbs that are the problem! What is wrong with these people? Mad

    So I need to go and eat 118-218g carbs right now to make my daily total right?  Nah, I don't think so.  My BG's say otherwise.  Smile  And I'm sure yours do too Wink

    I saw that too mate-getting more outrageous by the day I would say but having said that I do know of folks who eat 240 grams a day of carbs with good BG results...They're typically known as 'Non diabetics' woot

    I have given Duggie some serious thought, how does a man not count carbs "I would guess I'm around 140 to 240 g of low GI carbs, but I don't particularly count nowadays" have such a wide range 140 to 240 per day and still talk of fasting BG in the low fours. Could it be the tight rubber suit, does it constrict his blood flow and give false meter readings because his hands have gone numb? is the guy half man half reptile? Is Duggie the biggest BS merchant since the legendary Gezzathorpe? Is he in fact Gezzathorpe? Every now and again someone comes along that defies all known experience. I said some time ago I think we are seeing a God, are we witnessing the return of Neptune God Of The Seas.

    I've never had to split dose my insulin ever and latest HbA1C is 41. Douggie seems more of a protected species than a snow leopard ! How does he get away with posting all this dross ? Where are the mods ? How is it the likes of Andy or Zand only have to sneeze to get a weeks ban, this guy manages to slip through the net ? If a newbie followed his advice, they'd soon have feet like a mountain goat !

    Would I take diet advice from this man? From seeing the photo? Yes, why not? Now I've listened to his approach to diet, I choose to carry on with my own.

    If I posted a photo of myself, you would probably say 'Would you take diet advice from this woman?' too. Smile

    Now I feel that is unnecessarily rude, Andy. I, for one, am jealous of his hair. I wish I had that much. Since I am no beauty queen myself I get quite upset when people make fun of how others look. I would love to be drop dead gorgeous but I'm not. Comments like these put me off posting photos of myself.

    I think it's more to do with what he's wearing Zand, the diving suit ? That for me is where the humour lies.
    Point taken though, we shouldn't always judge people by a pic alone. Unfortunately though, his dietary advice is as amusing as his outfit :-)

    That's what a diet of pot noodles and junk does to you, maybe you have cracked the mystery Two Collies, that's what the big yellow valve is for on the front of his rubber suit. I thought it was for inserting a handle to wind him up.

    Bring out the Gimp!
