Looking for some insight. I was on non insulin (farxiga and victoza) I was losing weight but my blood sugars were still all over the place. My endo suggested that she didn't think I am making enough insulin for those drugs to work so she wanted me to go on insulin. currently I am using Novolog in the V-GO30 continuous insulin pump. Since starting it my blood sugars have come down significantly …I was averaging in the 200-225 range…now I'm down to 110 - 150 range…but my frustration comes from the fact that I am now gaining weight. I am eating the same low carb diet as before. It is so depressing. all the progress I made with the weight loss has been undone. I have gained 18 lbs in the last month. Has anyone else experienced this and how do I manage it? I also have had gastric bypass surgery back in 2006. I lost 100 lbs, but have had many complications from it including a major malabsorption issue where I don't absorb any medications as well as most, nor vitamins etc… I get more and more depressed. Can anyone help?
