    To be fair... firstly it was you that posted it in the low carb forum in the first place Thirsty, secondly it is a study of type 2 diabetics, and thirdly, I'm type 1, but am reading it all the same :)

    No. i have no intention of editing your post. I find it amusing. I shall leave it here for all to see.

    Your insulting message to me this morning was much appreciated. I like to start the day with a joke. :lol:

    The members here saw fit to get annoyed about a post you made which as you say yourself to me was deliberately provocative towards low carbers. That is a breach of Forum rules. I would normally deal with this via pm, however YOU chose to put this on the board, not I.

    The Moderating team, decided to rename it because of comments made later, the moderating team decided to move it to a more appropriate area. This was explained to you, yet still you chose instead to criticise me personally.

    I am part of a team who was asked to do those things here. I am sorry you feel somewhat annoyed.........shoot the messenger is always the way to go, isn't it !

    Back to the study!!!
    With this Medpage article
    http://www.medpagetoday.com/Endocrinolo ... etes/18170
    there is an an audio clip in which Richard Bergenstal of the ADA discusses the hypoglycaemia 'theory' mentioned by Graham. He suggests that this may not be the explanation , recent further analysis of the Accord trials had not found an association between hypos and lower HbA1c levels in that trial
    It's worth following the link 'Still no culprit for excess mortality', which describes this in more detail.

    Anybody out there?

    I posted this in another thread, "I wonder what you make of this", and would be pleased if anyone has this experience of Type 2 and can answer.

    To be fair, I originally posted this in the diabetes discussion forum. It seems to be the case that some people took exception to a post which I consider to be of interest to all diabetics.

    Have another look at the link I posted. It is the case that folks here are being advised by many to maintain BG levels that, according to this research, may be dangerous.

    I didn't write the report, nor am I sure that the conclusions drawn are correct. I just thought that it should be brought to everyone's attention.

    "and they only studied people over 50 for some reason"

    Perhaps those over 50 were more likely to die within a reasonable timescale thus providing researchers with the cause or causes of death and thus analyse the likelihood of any relationship between recorded treatments, HbA1c etc . If some, all or most of the sausages did not die the long study would still be running.
