    hi everyone, I have had T2 for @ 5 years and am currently following a lowish carb diet. I'm have a question, how do I change my alias? I would like to post more but a little more privacy!

    I will tag @Administrator for you. Your information page states that you have Type1.5?

    I checked my info yesterday and found I was listed asT1.5 as well, even though I am T2 like the OP. I think there's another gremlin changing our Types on our profiles again. I mentioned this to admin yesterday. :)

    Hi there - I thought we fixed that, doh. I'll get that fixed on Monday. @EJaneF - you can edit your privacy settings from your account. However I can change your username, too, if you want - just PM me and let me know.

    Thanks!

    Hi all, thanks for the replies. I am type 2, don't know how that changed. How do I pm someone? Having trouble finding anything, just downloaded the mobile app. I have been looking at the low carb posts with interest, it is the only thing that has worked for me. Cut out bread, flour, pastry, potatoes and rice and hba1c went from 8.2 to 6.7. Currently 6.9. Still trying to get a couple of stone off, losing 10lb made a difference too.

    Hi Karen - It's not currently possible to merge your accounts, unfortunately, but deleting your "spare" account can certainly happen.

    When an account is deleted the content remains, with the account name being "Guest".

    If you could just confirm which you want to keep, it can be organised. If you want to do something different, to protect your privacy, like change your user name, please send a PM to me or any of the Mods.
