Hi, everyone. This is my first post on here and I'm not really sure where to start. I'm 24 years old and have been a Type One Diabetic for 6 years. I use an OmniPod pump and a Dexcom CGM to manage my…Continue

"Your response to metformin is great to hear! Unfortunately type 1 and insulin resistance / PCOS are not mutually exclusive. Sounds like your endo may also learn something from your experience."

Emily replied to Emily's discussion 'PCOS And Metformin'
"I have been on Metformin for about a month now (against my endo's wishes.) I have seen a significant decrease in insulin use. (Insulin to carb ratios have gone from 1:8 to 1:14.) I have also lost 10 pounds. My OB/GYN started me on the extended…"

Tamra replied to Emily's discussion 'PCOS And Metformin'
"I have done some research on PCOS because I suspect I might have it. I was going to ask my doctor about testing for it as well as going on Metformin to help control it and insulin resistance. This is just my opinion and understanding here so please…"

"You raise some good questions, I wish I had some experience to help, but I don't. Let us know what you discover. You all have had me exploring Met as a solution to the liver dumps, but I kinda decided that it wasn't the best solution, for…"

mohe0001 replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"Lets see the Dexcom data, if you feel comfortable posting it. Ten years ago, when I was 22, I lost 20 lbs in one month, but I didn't notice the change. This was before I was educated on how to adjust my basal. I completely stopped taking bolus…"

2hobbit1 replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"I have had my basal requirements drop out abruptly several time and then events recover to a higher level. It comes with the territory. Do you have a copy of Think Like a Pancreas by Gary Scheiner or Pumping Insulin by John Walsh? DO you use a CGM?…"

Robyn replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"Just an added note. I was complaining of changing basal rates for years in my 30s. There were no answers provided, and very little investigation. I exercise regularly, eat clean and fairly low carb. In my thirties, my problems may have resembled…"

meee replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"Maybe it is a hormonal issue, I would do the testing to see. And reduce your insulin basal and bolus to try to cut back on those horrible hypos."

Scott A replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"Is your doctor the one adjusting your basal/bolus insulin still or are you making corrections as needed? I agree with Terry about doing basal/bolus testing and making adjustments. Dr Bernstein's Diabetes Solution has some good information. His…"

YogaO replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"I have had significant blocks of time over the years where my basal needs have changed. In my case, I have gotten to the point of making the changes myself on an as needed basis. My endo gets a fresh basal rate listing at every appointment (if…"

Robyn replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"I have had so many lows it was ruling my life. I had nocturnal lows, especially after exercise. It has been very severe at times of my life, and less so, at other times.... I suggest you read about adrenal fatigue. I am treating myself for it. I…"

Terry replied to Emily's discussion 'Hypoglycemia and sudden need for less insulin'
"There may be many reasons for this and it's good that you're checking with your doctor. I've found that one of the common reasons for me to start running higher or lower blood glucose levels is due to a basal rate need that changed…"
