How To Gain Weight If You Have Diabetes

Even though you might be eating a normal amount of food, this loss of sugar and calories due to diabetes will still cause you to lose weight.[1] However, you can still work with your diabetes and maintain a healthy weight.

    Insulin causing weight gain.

    I've been diabetic for many, many years but recently I just got tired of all the medication and the cost of going to the specialist and the medication. I ran out of insulin. I was exercising and losing weight very easily. I have fought weight issues all my life so I started felling good about this and told myself I need to take better care of me. So, I went to see my Dr. and went back on my insulin (high doses) but I'm gaining weight now. I'm so frustrated.

    I went on Lantus in 2010. I gained 70lbs. At the time I was seeing a physicians assistant at the time and I liked him for a while. He began to harshly tell me that the weight gain was my fault. He also made me feel so horrible about myself that he talked me into seeing a weight loss surgeon. I went to the clinic and was all set up to have gastric bypass. Finally I came to my senses and I now have a doctor who is also a diabetic. When I said to him that I thought insulin caused the weight gain he agreed with me 100%. He has now switched my long acting insulin to Triciba. It has helped me to lose about 20lbs. Along with the low carb high fat diet and the new insulin I have been able to lose 55lbs all together.
    So, I can understand your frustration. Hang in there.

    That's awesome for you! I will say I have an awesome endocrinologist. She never makes me feel bad. I have at least doubled my exercise and am really watching what I eat. I'm going to talk to her at our next visit to see what she says.
