Hi - I was justed switched from Metformin to Humlog and Lantix. I am taking hormone pills 100mcg for losing my thyroid. I just read that this medicine causes insulin resistance. Now I understand why my counts have been so high 250-300. Why can't doctors tell you this when they are prescribing both meds? I gained 20lbs in 2weeks - diet hasn't changed. I don't know what else to do - I am watching what I eat to the point that I don't enjoy anything anymore. Walking is hard due to muscle aches yet I try 3-4 small walks a day I am up to 1 1/2 miles daily. I just don't know what to do anymore —Need suggestions and encouragement.
