      Hi, I have made a free webapp while bored in lockdown for people to manually enter and track various health markers, conditions and medications etc. Is it possible to post about it to see if it would help anyone? It's just me that's made it with some help from my partner who is a doctor

      Hi there, I am a researcher for a technology innovation company and I was wondering if it would be ok to ask the people on this forum if they use smart/connected injector pens and what they like/dislike about them. Would that be ok?

        Hi Jessica - all research posts require permission first, a colleague will forward you our research request form to complete first - thanks.

      Hello,

      I am an industrial design student and would like to share a questionaire for our design project, which is related to a non-profit design challenge. My posting was denied and mentioned that I should contact a moderator. What should i do?

      With kind regards,

      Hi I am type 1. I can't able to concentrate on my studies and when I determined to study I feel hungry and I am getting distracted and I have excess appetite. Suggest me a way to overcome this. Please.

      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.

      Hi Juicyj, thanks for your reply. Like Iron_Addict, I also find the site a bit unfriendly for inexperienced users and find it quite difficult to find my way around, but I will try to find something in the diet section.

      I was diagnosed with T2 in 2011. I immediately went on a carb restricted and low fat diet, eating max 30g carbs per meal. I lost 14 kg in 3 months. Since then the weight has been creeping on again. 4 months ago I started a LCHF diet and I have not lost one single KG. What am I doing wrong? I do not eat bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, cereals etc.

        Hi Sally - I would suggest starting a post in the diet section so that other members can help you ;)

      hi, im fairly new to this site,im a little frustrated because im trying to find somewhere i can update my profile to having type 1 and type 2 diabetes (arent i the lucky one), there doesent appear to be a listing for this unfortunately, D.

        Juicyj
        Hi there and welcome to the forum, you can write onto your profile your status however only those who read it will know, are you looking for advice on anything ? To be honest it depends on your medication rather than 'type', if you post under type 1 and looking for information then others will be able to respond, shout me if you need any more help ;)

      can anybody advise me whether the freestyle libre is any good for glucose monitoring?
      1. Juicyj
        Juicyj
        Hi @gisele1949 I am currently using it and would recommend it, you still have to test on your normal meter for driving, but for a greater idea of what's going on and to track your BG overnight, it is a good piece of kit to have.

        Sorry Kevin I cannot advise you on this, your nurse/consultant should be working with you to ensure your insulin doses are matching your requirements, are you in regular contact ? and are you recording your results, your averages sound good to me ;)

    Diagnosed type 1 - in 2013 after a week's skiing holiday during which I skied my first black run and then celebrated by drinking a can of coke, in fact I didn't stop drinking coke that week...

    I try hard to not let type 1 rule my life, it's like walking a tightrope every day. However I challenge myself to defy this condition, so continue to ski each year, taken up riding a road bike, started running in 2017, run each week at various park runs and completed my 50th park run in August 2019.

    Take it one day at a time, help others and don't take life too seriously.
