    Hi @_AneL _ - Nothing new to report.

    I appreciate it's a bit like waiting for a bus! Keep checking back, or email forum@diabetes.co.uk , but you will receive an email when the Go button is hit.

    It is happening @gregorgregor30 - It's just had a little delay.

    Stick with it.

    Lizzie - That should have gone out to everyone who is waiting, so hopefully everyone's in the loop. Of course, it's disappointing it has been delayed, but bearing in mind it is to make improvements, hopefully the time will pass quickly..

    It's about the forthcoming low carb program coming for T1 diabetics.
    You had to apply at the time it was announced awhile back before xmas.

    Birdie - The invitations for the T1 programme went out, in the form of (paraphrased) "those who would like to participate, contact x, y or z", rather than individuals being cherry picked and invited, so if you're interested, please don't think you were left off any list.

    I honestly have no idea about the detail of the programme yet, or what qualifying criteria are (except insuling using T1 - which seems very obvious), but if you would like to be considered for inclusion, then you could email forum@diabetes.co.uk and your email will be directed internally as appropriate.

    Hello. I haven't had the April launch email but had received previous emails and do want to be involved. Is there anyone I can get in touch with to ensure I am in the loop for the April launch?

    I'll follow this up on behalf of those posting on the thread Nicole, and report back here.

    As we're on a Sunday, I may not receive a response until the beginning of the working week, so please be patient with us.

    I think I missed the original thread about the type 1 program but, given how long it appears to have taken, I wonder if it is worth reposting. For those considering adopting a lchf approach, some may have chosen to give it a go on their own by now.

    Given lchf is rare amongst people with type 1 but many people still maintain good results without it, I hope the program makes it clear it is only one possible approach.

    Thanks for following up. Best to get the programme right before rolling it out and I do not object to any delay though updates are useful!
