When my blood sugar fluctuates I have a harder time maintaining my weight. Has anyone else experienced this? I have noticed that for me, the more crazy my blood sugar is, the harder time I have maintaining my weight.

I was doing good lately BGs are very inconsistent, my weight continues to fluctuate within a 5 lb. Range. Spring will soon be here hoping to drop a few more lbs. Good Luck!

Sounds like some D3 might bring "spring" on a little sooner for you.

You're right and right now along with everything else doc has me on a 3 month prescription of 50,000 units per month. After that wants my calcium to include D3. All of these supplements how do you remember everything along with insuling shots eeee!

Get a divided container for pills from your local pharmacy. They range from 1 day's to 1 month's pills. Some are divided into am and pm slots. You could keep the pill-tainer by your insulin supplies and take the a.m. with your breakfast injection and the p.m. with your dinner injection.

I hear you. I'm now up to a combination of 10 pills and supplements a day. I just got myself a pill divider case and that made things so much easier.

Have to try this, organization is a must with all of this! I am on more supplements than prescription drugs, but am on insulin, now liquid iron, med for hypothyroid, yikes! Good luck to us all!

Yes, I have. I can't loose weight when my BGs are up. When I control them, I loose without too much effort … a little at a time, but pretty consistently.

This seems to relate to insulin resistance and is a pretty vicious cycle!
