I found something that took weight off. After I limited my carbohydrate consumption to less than 100 mg per day, I lost about 20 pounds (about 12% of my weight) in two months. When my carb count decreased, my total daily units of insulin went down by 50%.
My original intent was to increase my blood glucose control. That not only worked, but I also lost weight and dropped my blood pressure enough to discontinue my meds.
Losing weight and using insulin can be tricky but I'm very happy with the results. I never felt hungry or deprived as I dropped weight. Limiting carbs is a proven weight loss tactic but most people put the weight back on when they return to their old eating habits. I've been on this low carb regimen for six months now and don't intend to ever stop eating this way.
