I was insulin dependent for about 4 years and was up to 75 units of lantus a day. I was also very heavy and did not exersize at all. 4 years ago I lost over 100 Lbs and have kept it all off with proper diet and exersize. About a month agao i felt sluggish and went to the doctor. My Blood sugars where out of sight. He explained it was not my fault. He put me on lantus and I am getting pretty steady with 20 units in the AM and 20 units in the PM. I feel much better. Now I have put on a few pounds which I believe is from water. As I continue to research about my issue I found this group. After reading many posts I am scared about weight gain. When i lost all my weight before I went off insulin and Metformin was doing the trick. I still eat clean and work out 6 days a week. I would enjoy some comments and words of wisdom.
