This is sort of a companion question to the current one about I:C ratios.
Knowing that insulin contributes to fat storage etc. etc., I've been cutting back on carbs in an attempt to lose about 10-15 pounds (I'm cutting back for other reasons as well, but that's another topic!). I keep a close eye on my TDD numbers, which have gone from about 25-30 units per day to roughly 20 per day. I know that all sorts of varying factors contribute to insulin needs, but I'm curious to know how much insulin other T1s take. I have no idea if my TDD is "average" or below or above, and I'm not sure what sort of a daily dose will help me lose weight (I'm currently 5'7" and 150 lbs).
What's your TDD and do you have any insulin-related weight change stories to share?
(I recall that Lantus/Levemir vs. pump regimens results in different TDDs for the same person, which is why I put "pumpers" in the subject heading, but I'm curious to hear from anyone.)
