So hoiw much extra insulin did you need to take when starting thyroid meds (I am taking genereic l-thyroxine)

This helps immensly---I was very worried since Reno is having somewhat of a swine flu outbreak at the moment that I was gettign sick--the CGMS helps--I can see it going up but was having a dickens gettting it back down---I am usually very insulin sensitive--so since I am not working today I will try to double it--that comes close to what I took in corrections yesterday and se what happens...since I am at home a low if it should happen will be easy to treat.

Also--not trying to be too personall--did your dose have to go up and did that make it worse? Dr said I may have to be on 3x what I am taking now to get my TSH down to 1 where he wants it....
So I am hating all this extra insulin need--I really hope the thyroid meds are worth it in the lonf run--short runsucks rocks at the moment
I myself have problems with my thyroid. Euthirox madicatie use them, am now quite stable. Often more stable than my Bloeduiker values.
Could you explain your post a bit, made NO sense to me after the first line.
