Both Tim and Alison have degrees in English law (no, really, we do) so this page should be filled with densely-packed fine print. But, you know, life is just far too short and we feel we’ve aged five years just writing this much.
About medical advice
Clearly, anything written in this blog does not make up formal medical advice. Who would think it would do? As you already know, the correct person to speak to about your diabetes is your general practitioner or your diabetic specialist nurse. It’s best not to make radical changes to your medication or lifestyle based on the advice of a badly-written blog. Unless you’re an idiot.
About our articles
We try our best to make articles at least reasonably accurate and do attempt to avoid defaming large and litigious corporations where possible. If something is truly offensive, defamatory or just plain wrong email Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance and we’ll have a nice chat about it and sort something out.
About your comments and threads
With regard to your comments, threads, pingbacks and other feedback please note that this site is not a democracy. Think of it more as a benign dictatorship. Comments may be edited or deleted if the need arises. We sometimes edit to correct typos or horrible grammatical errors – this is generally to stop you looking like an eejit. However we reserve the right to do what the heck we want with your comments if we need to – remember the benign dictatorship thing.
Needless to say we don’t take responsibility for other people’s published comments – note that we hardly take responsibility for our own. As with our posts, if something is truly offensive, defamatory or just plain wrong please do email Tim at email@example.com before seriously kicking off. If you do fancy kicking off, however, do keep in mind that both site founders are lawyers.
About our bias
Sadly we’re not sponsored or affiliated with any large corporations (shame, eh?) and we’re not in the pay of Big Pharma. However, being diabetic, we do use products made by a variety of manufacturers (otherwise we’d be dead). Also being high-flying diabetes bloggers, we are occasionally fĂŞted by Big Pharma and do get free products from time to time, which is quite nice. However, none of these things are exciting or generous enough to make us biased towards or against any product orÂ organisation. I mean, would you give a company reams of glowing write ups if they merely gave you a poxy sample of some nasty glucose sweets or a crappy glucose meter? I think not.
Therefore you can be assured that any reviews are pretty much unbiased. Â This blog is completely self-funded and we do it purely for the love of ranting about diabetes from our own Internet-based soapbox.
