I don't know how many people are aware of just why the changes that have occurred lately restricting LCH* (note how careful I am being) on diabetes India and the establishment of LCHF Diabetes.
Firstly, I am moderator of LCHF Diabetes, but please read on.
My views on LCHF are well known and trenchant, but latterly the whole reason for setting up the group - to support people with diabetes has been hijacked by polarised groups (myself among them). On the one side are the supporters and those seeking a solution to at least alleviate their condition, and on the other side people vehemently opposed to anything other than the established dogma and medication solution. This has become so entrenched that the noise has turned off earnest seekers when a posted thread turns into a ridiculous too and fro between less than ten established protagonists running to 50 plus bruising exchanges per post that get nowhere. I've been guilty of that in the past, but even I cannot even bear to read the responses to threads I put up. So the moderators have decided to try to introduce some sanity to the debate. Trust me if you do not do so already, but this is not to stifle debate, but to try to get the whole raison detre back on track.
For my part I regret the deletion of anything to do with LCHF on Diabetes India, and it's a clumsy mechanism to deal with the problem but the current situation had me seriously considering dipping out and letting everyone just get on with their world views. However, this would leave the genuinely seekers of wisdom out in the cold, hence me accepting the invitation to be moderator of the new site. It's not ideal and I'm unsure how successful the concept is, but I'll give it a shot.
I'd appreciate your feedback, I might have things wrong, as might HU.
The new site is for supporters of LCHF and it's role in diabetes in India. It is not a debating forum for those opposing that view, so please don't go there - there are many more sites out there who want to argue their prejudice. The new site will live or die due to the success or otherwise of those espousing the LCHF lifestyle.
I have no attachment to to the new site other than to re-establish a grounding that promotes my view that LCHF is the growing movement to control and eliminate the scourge of type two diabetes that is bankrupting the health services of the entire world in the grip of multinational companies wrecking multinational health.
I'd appreciate your feedback, as none of us is as smart as all of us! But outside of that, transfer your allegiance if you think there is a positive to the move. It will take very little negativity to make me move on.
