Re: weight gain with humalog? please help!
It's possible that the reason you're gaining weight is because your diabetes is finally under good control! When your sugars run high, your body starts burning fat for fuel instead because it can't use the sugar from your food. This can cause weight loss, but it's a very unhealthy way to lose weight.
Once your blood sugars get under control, your body can then start using the food you eat for fuel, but it stops using the excess fat.
Usually this process tapers off...in other words, you have gained weight, but probably shouldn't gain a lot more.
Then the trick is to lose weight in a healthy way...by cutting down portion sizes, not overeating simple carbs (potatoes, rice, pasta, white bread, rolls, sweets) and continuing the exercise program. You'll probably lose the weight slowly, but you will lose it. The good thing, too, about losing weight slowly is that you're much more likely to keep it off.
