    Hi. Info such as Diabetes type and any medications you take. You can also put comments in your 'Signature'. Go to your profile page and have a play around. :)

    I'm not giving you stick, but it doesn't appear to me that you have filled anything in yet. Are you struggling with how to do it?

    Look for your user name, top right of the page. Hover on that and a drop down appears. Chose personal details. Scroll down a little and you will see an option for Type of diabetes (includes don't have diabetes if that is what you want) and under that are other options for treatment, medications etc.

    It's definitely not rocket science to fill a form details out.

    Not everyone is au fait with the internet. We all start from different places and a little tolerance would make the forum a better place, don't ya think?

    I am 74 years old and I do / did not have problems filling out forum profile details.

    There is reluctance from the OP not to fill in his / her profile for some reason, apart from being uncertain of the software.

    Look back at most of his threads where members have asked for his details to be filled in his / her profile.

    This is nonsense, I do recall people asking me to put in my details, and I have always explained my details in the post directly. I use the forum on the mobile app mostly and not the website, and it differs. I have added my details, so what is the big issue?

    Good work @charlie000 , if you feel anyone is picking on you in the forums then please report it. There's no need to suffer in silence.
