I was diagnosed almost three months ago with type 1. I have always been thin, about 55 Kg. I lost about 8 kilos before i was diagnosed, bringing me to 47. Anyway, in the last three months since being on insulin i have put on 12 kilos and am 59 kilos. only 4 kilos heavier than i have ever been…
So, i went to see my Endo the other day for my check up and she goes… ‘well, you’ve put on a bit of weight. You don’t want to keep putting it on at that rate, do you?’
I was already a bit sensitive about it and have been trying to eat better food when trying to control hypos. I am hardly taking any insulin as i’m in the honeymoon period and i keep having hypos even after only having 3 units with my meal. It’s hard to exercise because i will almost always have a hypo. My dietitian keeps telling me to eat eat eat.
After hitting me with that blow my Endo didn’t give me any advice on what I should do to fix the situation. I left feeling hurt and confused.
Have any of you dealt with a situation like this? Or had an insensitive Doctor say something to upset you?
