    I agree Type 2 Life thread is better for general chat. I love it!
    No one is saying you cannot stay on topic here.
    Fbg and anything to do with your fasting blood levels. Very very welcome! :) :) :)

    Some posts have to be moved to start another thread because they are asking questions. If they get answered within this thread then they are only getting answers from a small audience whereas if their post goes onto the forum then they will get more answers as other posters will join in. People ask all manner of things here including diet questions, other health problem questions and they may get a few answers here or they may be ignored as often happens.
    You have to be sensible and only post about your fasting levels rather than say that your cat is not well. your BF is in a bad mood, the dog ate your slippers, you are going on holiday, etc......It is not relevant to the topic and nor are recipe queries, blood test results.
