You may also be wondering, why a small group of highly vocal and extremely high posting anti low carb members, have been allowed to rule the forum for over seven years, and why these promoters of complete failure have been made mods. The reason is simple, it's all about money, there is no money in promoting a low carb diet, the money is in selling products, services and very expensive medication, a well controlled low carbing type two diabetic does not need. Type one diabetics who low carb usually report vastly improved control of weight, blood glucose numbers and well-being, again huge savings in medication costs are made, with many type ones reporting a drastic reduction in insulin requirements. That's the financial savings which could be £billions, the savings in early death, amputations, blindness, kidney failure and human misery is incalculable.
