So…I've been on lantus/novolog for eight years. I have been having extremely high blood sugars for a long time which led me to "give up." As a result I was very thin. Over the past several months I have been recommitted to my diabetes care and was taking all my medication, in the correct dosages and times but using the same injection site (my legs). It made little to no difference in my control. For example, I could take nearly 15 units of novolog and still have a 300 sugar. I recently read on another website that using the same injection site can reduce insulin absorbtion so i switched sites (now using my bottom). I have literally gained 11 pounds in one week. Last week, I weighed about 130lbs, and today I weighed over 140lbs. Naturally this has me very upset. Does anyone have any advice on how to loose the weight? (fast) I already exercise everyday of the week. Or, does anyone know what else could be going wrong? I thought it could be my thyroid, but I don't feel any other symptoms like fatigue, irritability, or dry skin.
