Hi everyone - a small reminder

Hello everyone. I just wanted to offer a small reminder to everyone that this is now a combined board. This is now the meeting place for the T1s as well. While there are many similarities between the two types of diabetes, there are also some significant differences. T1s don't have the option of talking about reversal - we're stuck as our insulin producing cells have been destroyed. Also, we don't have to obsess quite as much about carbs. We have to count them of course in order to maintain good control, but low or extremely low carb is not a necessity. I found better control by going low carb, but it's not as crucial for us and it is more of a personal choice than anything else.

It's nice that we can all get together and share our experiences and our tips and I'm happy to be here.

I think a diet debate area is a cool idea. Sometimes in all the fray over diet people forget that the bottom line is good control and how you get it may be different than how someone else acheives it.
