Graham Duck the armchair expert on lowcarb diabetic blog

Hello avid readers of mine,

Graham's usual avatar
This post is a critique of Graham Duck  purportedly from Lancashire who usually uses the user-name graham64.

Wherever his surname really is Duck or a reference to the animated duck avatar he uses or to his sexuality one can only speculate.

Certainly the overtly camp replies I’ve received from him in the past suggests the latter.

A long-term cohort of Eddie Mitchell, he's a prolific poster on Eddies blog and other social media of dietary advice aimed at diabetics.

Recommendations apparently based on his own personal experience and anecdotal so called evidence from the net.

Hinted to be educated, I suspect like Eddie he not qualified to take about anything, let alone diabetes management.

He claims his material comes from peer reviewed research. Clearly if you give his post more than just a cursory glance and your knowledgeable on science. You realise quickly this isn't the case and he doesn't really know what he's talking about.

Just like his long term writing partner Eddie, Graham is a lowcarb advocate and big pharm conspiracy theorist.

With a dangerous stance on medication, with the wild claim that diabetics can get by with little to no medication.

This may be true in the early stages of type 2 diabetes, but once the condition has progressed to the point of needing medication. Most people will have to take it for the rest of their lives and this is certainly true of type 1 diabetes. Right now, there's no cure for diabetes only management.
Graham is your typical out of touch out-of-touch argumentative old man who dismisses modern medical science and views it with suspicion.

No doubt posting his quackery and big pharm conspiracy theories  during a local silver surfers meeting at the library.

He's the type of old-time codger that would turn up at MacDonald's trying to book a table for two and to examine the wine list.

Certainly if you are a diabetic, I would think twice if not three times about following any of his recommendations.

Graham knows nothing about your medical history or the severalty of your diabetics.

So his peddling and recommendation of Eddies dodgy dietary regime which is simply not fit for purpose and implying you don't need medication is in my opinion dangerous.

  1. If Eddie was not so small in stature you would be forgiven for thinking that they were twins. They are sad, vicious old men.

    Graham spends a lot of time on the net looking for articles that agree with the low carb way of live but does not have the brains to find anything that upholds a criticism.

    You would think that in their golden years they would set aside all this rubbish and have a fulfilled life but they are on a crusade and cannot see the wood for the trees. Life is passing them by and a bucket list of things to do before you die would surely give them opportunities to enjoy their lives. It is no good regretting what you haven't done when you are lying on your death bed.

    Do you think their diet is stunting their brains?

      That’s a good question, certainly the diet they peddle is lacking in vital nutrients.

      But Eddie and Graham aggressive approch to promoting their beliefs and attacking with insults, mockery and sarcasm anyone who disagrees or challenges their big crock of the proverbial.

      Points to them being self-opinionated, stubborn and egocentric, traits that would have been evident through out their lives.

  2. Graham the Duck, or is it Dick, should carry a health warning.
    He comes across as a very angry old man and needs to get a life. What a waste of time and emotions vilifying people who do not follow his crap advice.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment.
