Hi @Alyssa10 It’s pretty common to gain weight with diabetes unless you are too high all the time. Have you been treating a lot of lows? Those calories can really add up without you realizing it even though they are necessary. Do you mind giving us a little more info. How long have you been on insulin and when did you start meal time insulin? Do you have a CGM and if you do could you show us a couple of graphs? Any recent changes in your A1C’s? Have you had a change in school or job that means you are sitting more than you normally do? Even standing burns calories so it might not even be a difference in “exercise” that could be doing it.
Stopping your insulin doses can and most likely will lead to DKA and believe me you don’t want to go there. Talk about medical bills yeesh! Try to focus on keeping your BG’s in line and keeping notes especially when you are struggling can be really helpful. Stressors, BG’s, dosages, exercise, diet are all good things to keep note of to see if there is a pattern.
Also have you been tested for celiac disease? Many people are asymptomatic and the symptoms that they do get can be far ranging including weight gain. Although classic celiac is most often weight loss and stomach problems.
