DCUK Never a dull day at the forum of flog !

"The Diabetes Forum is not just helping people, it’s affecting scientific research and understanding. A prime example is Low carbohydrate diet to achieve weight loss and improve HbA1c in type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes: experience from one general practice where the Diabetes Forum is cited as being popular in highlighting the adoption of a low carbohydrate diet as a way of achieving weight loss and improving HbA1c in patients, despite the approach being 'generally frowned upon in the UK'. It’s taken almost a decade for low-carb to be accepted as a valid approach to diet for people with diabetes – and it is the postings, comments and threads from the Diabetes Forum that has influenced, and is continuing to influence policy. This is only possible if we’re able to openly share and engage." Forum administrator here.

Great to see the non diabetic admin promoting the many benefits of a low carb diet. The $64,000 questions? why over the years have thousands of low carb posts been deleted? why have so many low carbers been banned? why have so many low carb threads been locked? why have so many anti low carbers been made forum mods? No, I am not exaggerating, Graham and myself had around three thousand posts deleted alone.

A member posts re. forum members forum posted being posted of the forum of flogs facebook page without permission. 

"Thanks Admin. To be honest, it would have been good to know this sooner but I can understand your reasoning. Maybe some members may be a little more careful what and how much they share here in future. This is a great forum but we need to be able to trust it."

The bottom line here is, when you sign up to the flog, you sign up for the management to use the member in any way they think fit. Including regular mail shots trying to flog you stuff you do not need. It's not known as the forum of flog for nothing.

It is the members who have done all the hard work, and increased the lowcarb profile massively over the years. The DCUK management have done next to nothing, other than exploit the members at every opportunity.
