Emily apparently this post was considered "hostile" (this isn't it exactly, but is the most recent draft I have). Could you explain how this is "hostile"?
Dave, I don't see an apology here, but maybe I missed it. There certainly would have been less conflict if you had made those changes in your initial post. It also would have helped if you hadn't defended your original post saying it needed no modification, until your post here. If you had posted the following, then I would have endorsed it completely:
"There is much that T1's and T2's have in common with this illness. We face similar health risks and alterations to our lifestyle with the exception of insulin therapy, and even that isn't a bright line separating us. Some T2's that are no longer producing appreciable insulin need to supplement with insulin injections (some would argue that more T2's should manage their diabetes with insulin). And we both face burdens of management, record-keeping, etc."
"Often with disease there are multiple paths to getting there, but once you arrive, the disease is similar. That is how it is with diabetes. T1 or T2, we are brothers and sisters, not cousins. We really need to keep that in mind and act like it, folks."
Thanx Emily my dear friend. We are ok here. We are doing screening now with glucometers and test strips sent to me by Carol Atkinson of IFL USA.My regrets is that it is soon finish but GOD will make another provision. The weather is so hot with high humidity. I don't know if the heat is also causing diabetes. We are having more people now with diabetes. Thank you my dear. Joakin
Emily, I had a post removed earlier today without any mention or explanation. Could you find out why this was done? My post was an attempt to find common ground on a divisive issue and was carefully written and in no way inflammatory. I am deeply offended that this was done. Could you please put the post back or explain why it was removed? Thank you.
hi emily, thanks for all you do. i have no idea how to leave a comment about the non invasive glucose meter. i want to let people know that wireless technology, specifically information carrying microwave radiation is not non invasive. it travels through walls, travels through bodies and within milliseconds has a myriad of biological effects within a large number of biological pathways. It may be useful and in fact necessary but it doesn't come without a risk. In fact, I measured the milligauss or low frequency reading from just the battery in my daughter's pump and it put out a 5 miligauss pulse every 5 seconds. Over 2 m/g is considered a health risk. There should be a protective shield between the pump and the skin so that it reduces risk of cancer or leukemia. This is the inconvenient truth that nobody wants to look at or consider let alone discuss. I have approached the JDRF many times with information about Wireless technology and it's affect on blood sugar ( www.magdahavas.com ) and they have NEVER responded nor acknowledged my communications in any way.
Emily, thanks for the comment. When people read and respond to a blog post they encourage more content and more content encourages more writing etc. I appreciate you reading mine, it gives me desire to restart the effort.
Hi Emily :) This is my kinda cat ! I keep looking at my pets and seeing $ signs.They keep looking at me wanting snacks...I have been following the lady you had on the chat -that did Alert dog training.Have you worked with your dog anymore.Is he alerting ? :)
I just would like to thank you for all the wonderful and interesting video chats. The chat yesterday was very educational and interesting. I'm going to check and see that my brother who is newly diagnosed has done his eye exam! I've talked to my endocrinologist about the site and have encouraged to have a look. Thanks again for all you are doing!
