I finally managed to lose some weight recently. Lost about 7kg (15 pounds) in the last 4 months. I feel good but have had a few more hypo’s occur. My body requires less insulin recently and I’ve adjusted it down to the lowest I’ve been in a very long time - and it still feels a bit strong on certain days.
My basal numbers has gone down from about 25 units a day to around 17. And it’s weird how the reduction isn’t proportional. For example, I used to have the highest basal post dinner around 1.1u, now my basal needs are the lowest at that time - reduced to 0.6u - i don’t know why how it went from being the most insulin resistant time of day to the least insulin resistant. In total I think I’ve seen a reduction of about 15-20 units of insulin a day. That’s about 25-35% reduction of my overall intake.
I can only explain this sudden insulin change attributed by the weight loss. But 7kg (15 pounds) isn’t that much, can it really have such a big impact on insulin?
