Hello, I am T2 and I've recently been put on toujeo Ling acting insulin. I'm still titration myself up until my fasting are between 70-110. I'm at 10 units right now. My fasting is around 140. I'm new to insulin but my biggest concern is weight gain. I am overweight now and I exercise on a regular basis. I try to keep my weight down, but my question is, since insulin causes weight gain, how am I supposed to battle that as a side effect? I am getting discouraged the more I read on it. I weigh 200 lbs now. I fluctuate between 195-205. It's always a struggle for me to lose weight. I work night shift and I am also going through menopause so I have all this working against me. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!! My exercise routine is usually walking around 3-4 miles every other day due to my crazy work hours. I also ride a bike once a week around 6 miles. I'm not a lazy person but I really struggle. I also just started a lower carb diet plan. I eat around 35-45 carbs a meal but now I'm reading that may be too much. I'm so confused.
