I take a week out, and on my return Ken is taking stupidity to a new level, on what is now known as the ghost forum. The forum started well, and in time could have been a useful resource, but Ken couldn’t let the old forum go. Constantly bitching about Benedict and the members, and the way diabetes.co.uk has changed since his unedifying demise as a moderator. We have complimented Sue many times on this blog, she used to be a great mod, until Ken turned her head, now she has become as deluded as him. Borofergie gets a lot of stick from Ken and his
Let’s take a look at Borofergie. Within days of diagnosis he was researching hard, it did not take him long to realise the foods that lead to his obesity and type two diabetes. Carbs had to go big time, he realised he had to carry on eating and quickly realised food containing natural fats, food that man had been eating since the beginning of time was not going to lead to a swift demise. Within months a huge weight loss, lipids of a teenager and most importantly, HbA1c in the fours. Check around and you will find very few diabetics ever get into the fours, in the fives is a great result, unfortunately most diabetics never get to a safe number. Borofergie does not know all the answers, nor does any healthcare professional, diabetes is an ultra complicated disease. It will probably be many years before the most brilliant Doctor or Scientist knows all the answers, but for a gifted amateur Fergie is doing a great job. Ken once called Dr. Richard Bernstein an amateur, Bernstein is arguably the world leading expert on blood glucose control. He was the first diabetic to test BG at home and realise the exact effect food had on his BG control, he also pioneered basal/bolus insulin techniques. I think it’s fair to say, millions of diabetics around the world, have had their quality and length of life improved thanks to Bernstein.
So, who are you going to follow Ken or Borofergie ? If you need to think about that question, I would go for psychiatric counselling before tackling the control of your diabetes.
Ken, for what my opinion is worth, dump the ranting against better men than you and me, and try to turn that horses arse you call a forum into something that makes a positive contribution to other diabetics.
