Does someone moderate the answers and replies on these questions to ensure that they are accurate?

There are moderators, but like others are saying, it's like sitting around the table and having discussions about our ways of managing and our questions. There is an ask the expert section (though I am not sure it's working at the moment) where you can get "expert" advice. However, many of us have found that expert does not equate accurate. It is kind of relative, as diabetes is not a one size fits all.

If you were just sitting around with a group of friends talking you wouldn't have someone who moderated the conversation. That's hat this amounts to. It's a group of people sitting around chatting about what's bothering them.

this is a discussion/support forum.
people express their opinions here
my answers are "accurate" in that they are based on what I have learned in the 10 years I have been successfully dealing various health issues.
always important to remember that what works for me may not work for you.

Not to my knowledge, and I see no need for such censorship on this site. There is a wide variety of approaches that people take to managing their diabetes. Since it is such an individual disease, what might work for one, might not work for another. There are some consistent threads to all approaches (e.g. carbohydrate control, exercise, achieving ideal weight.) I have attempted to learn as much as I can about diabetes and about how it affects me. If someone posts something outrageous, they will usually be questioned about it by other members. This is one of the most supportive sites for diabetes that I've found.
