Ok: I have posted here about weight gain since I have been on insulin. I was just told you can inject too much insulin even though you do not go LOW....hhhmmm
And that can cause the weight gain. My Dr has me on a regime of certain numbers, with a sliding scale if they are higher than planned. Could I be injecting too much insulin? How tight do the numbers have to be? I am DP in the morn. Numbers are: morning 8-9 mmol. Lunch 5.0 mmol, supper, 6-7 mmol.
I take 8 units before breakfast 10 units lunch and 18 supper...and 2 units more for every reading 2 mmol higher (RAPID)....55 units levemir 10 pm. . ..

Has anybody ever heard this theory before. Thank you for any input....
