This is not meant as a personal rebuke, just a review of the
guidelines that we must use to keep this forum useful. Please be very
careful about reporting hear-say. Your own personal experience is one
thing, repeating what you have "heard" is entirely another and can
cause much harm. It is understandable that such efforts are well
meaning, but without substantiating and NO personal experience is ,
the information completely worthless.
This is the stuff of urban legends and other nonsense. The purpose of
our forum is to share information, not rumor. If you have first hand
information, share it. It if it second hand and you feel you must
report it, CAREFULLY qualify what you say as in " my endo told me
thus and such " .
Unfortunately, some people believe everything they hear or read on
the internet. Insulin Pumpers makes a real effort to make sure that
the information we share and the manner in which we share it promotes
accurate reporting of personal experience and correct attribution of
other source material
