    Thinking about a line from a pm I received earlier today:
    It never ceases to amaze me the amount of time, effort and energy people give up to this forum out of the goodness of their hearts. Let's hear it for all of you, moderators and members alike.

    Very best to you all,

    And a big thanks from me too. I come here often for answers and when I couldn't find them I've posted a question. Every time I've had sound, sensible advice in a speedy reply from someone who has been there and has been happy to share their experience and knowledge. There's no substitute for it and this forum is worth it's weight in gold!

    couldn't agree more - you guys (the moderators and some of the frequent posters) ROCK!! you're doing great work and really helping a large number of people, many of whom you probably don't even know about. :D

    Yes, thanks Dan. 2 years ago I was contemplating becoming disabled with intense leg muscle pains that made it painful to get out of bed. Advice from Fergus & others on low carb transformed my life.

    You will see on the X-PERT thread that I was able to use the knowledge & experience gained here to assist with the course. The course leader was the dietitian who taught me to eat complex carbs & whose dietary advice I sought to follow. Her advice is different now.

    The problem is that most of the professionals are not diabetic, & can only give the advice they are taught. Their experience is second hand by observation. They need people like us to show them the way.

    Totally agree - this forum has definitely saved my life in just a few months.

    I was just about suicidal back in November, and have turned around my diet, decreased my insulin, dropped my Hba1c by 1.6 - all in a few months.

    Thanks everyone on here...... :D
