    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    what's up?

    Is there someone sitting at a computer at the web md diabetes support group who is censoring my comments? Every time I go on with a suggestion to cut out meat, dairy, fats and oils and processed foods I get a message back that says webmd is temporarily not available. Or the comment goes through but I never see it on the site.

    Someone wrote in asking what an endocrinologist would do for her. She is on two meds plus insulin and can't control her diabetes. Remembering xring's comments about the huge amount of money he spent on an endocrinologist with no results, I suggested she switch to a plant based diet and look up McDougall and Fuhrman on the net ( I forgot Esselstyn). Once again it never got through. And people say McDougallers don't listen to any other opinionl.

    Hi Dolores,

    The same thing happens to me occasionally.

    Since you are SUPER, and a great contributor to our group, we would hate to miss any of your inputs.

    If I take a long time to draft a reply, which I usually do, the system almost always acts up, or does not work. So, I draft any long reply on Notepad. To copy it into the text box, first I click Format and un-check "Word-Wrap". Then I highlight the text, click CTRL-C, put the cursor in the text box, and click CTRL-V.

    I don't know if that helps, but maybe... :-)

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
