You can get an amen from me! What sort of endo is he if he does not know that insulin causes weight gain, for some people more than others! I have struggled with weight round the lower half of my abdomen all my life (I used to be big, my blood sugars used to be bordering on hypo, and I did have hypoglycemia if I did not eat enough) and then my pancreas packed up because of a cyst on the end of it, which they cannot reach to remove, and I went super skinny - like someone out of a concentration camp. My top half has gone skinny again due to poor control, but there is still the apron at the bottom. I was moaning about this to one doctor and he said it is because of the high doses of insulin that I am on. I am stuck with it. I am not vain, but would love to have hour glass figure, but with this disease it ain't goin' to happen!
The only thing I could do is to reduce the insulin, but then my sugars would go higher and that is not healthy either! Don't even consider it! I do not hold much store with these A1Cs anyway. I expected mine to be in double figures because of numerous infections, but the hypos have seemed to cancel them out and I am 9.9. Not my worst, but .....
Your comment should also go in the "What's the most annoying comment ........?" section. See what they have to say about it in there!
Your doctor does not know you as well as you do and those around you.
