This is what my internest said to me today.
I've been overweight pretty much my whole life. I'm 35 now & about 60lbs overweight. I was pre-diabetic. Got pregnant & was put on insulin right away. COntroled beautifuly throughout my pregnancy. Had a healthy baby 7lbs when she was born. A year later my A1C went from 6 - 12. That was off insulin & on no meds or diet.
Doctor put me on metformin. Didn't really help. Upped the dose. Still didn't help enough. So I went to an endo. She put me on insulin and kept me on the metformin. Got my A1C down to 8 from 10 in 6 weeks.
I just saw my internest today & he says I shouldn't be on the insulin yet. I should just lose the weight & I can reverse this all. I don't completly agree. Even the diabetes educator I saw said that I should be on insulin because the meds wheren't working.
What does everyone think? I know I need to loose weight. Thats a given. I'm down 10lbs from last year. I've got another 60 to go to be considered at my ideal weight. The thought of loosing it overwhelms me.
