    Hi,

    I am a Psychology undergraduate student. I am currently recruiting participants to complete a survey for my dissertation. I have received permission from diabetes.co.uk to post a link on this forum which directs people to my survey. If I do this will it be marked as spam as I noticed that you need to post at least 3 times before posting a link on here?

    Many thanks,
    Hannah.

      I just tried to send a private message but there is no option to start a conversation when I click on the envelope icon for some reason. @Juicyj @DCUKMod

      @hannah9825 - I'll start a PM and include all the Mods, then when you've posted the body of your thread, one of us can insert the link.

      Sorry this is a bit of a trial for you.

    Hi. I read your post. Excellent --99% spot on. The one thing you missed (unless I skimmed over it) was exercise - By the way, it appears that you have disabled the opportunity to reply. I hope you didn't do it to avoid any backlash from people who might not agree with your thoughts. What you have advocated is absolutely spot on. You may find you will only get positive comments.

      I'm having a hard time interacting with people at the moment, hence the no-comments; that's on me just being me. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, and I could learn something, but right now I'm not in a space where comments work. ;) As for exercise, I don't know much about it. And as nutrition's food, that I do know something about. ;) But thanks for reading&taking the trouble to respond!

      I used go be wondering why my GGT was always high on lipid tests in spite of being a strict vegetarian and almost no alcohol..then I stopped the daily full fat yogurt I was taking for years and viola my HBA1C dropped a few points..stop dairy and see the difference.
