I haven't been very active on the site for awhile, but when I saw your message come across, I just had to write.
I am at work right now, so can't go in to too much detail yet but I have a lot to share. I am on Symlin and have been for over a year. I am also highly insulin resistant and for me that meant weight gain when I didn't really have a problem before. My A1c's were good before and are good now. I was on Bernstein before but am not now - Symlin & Bernstein don't go together well. What you wind up with is the Somogyi effect.
So I ask, if you're following Bernstein - how is your weight and how are your A1c? And, what do you consider an "abnormal" amount of insulin? What's your I:C ratio?
However, PLEASE don't start until we have a chance to discuss. It can be very, very dangerous.
