Has this natural production increased?
Is your body producing any insulin?
They haven't explain it. I just went in Monday and still waiting for labs. It's just odd that I have been on that much insulin and then now that I am losing weight that if I even take more than 10 units in a shot I get all shakey and tired and lethargic as compared to me taking 20 units 3 times a day for last 11 years. I don't see how that can happen. I know I've lost alot of weight but still.
I know of one case of spontaneous remission of type I diabetes. It was so unusual that it was written up in medical journals. It was a friend of mine who had been a childhood diabetic. In your case you are still on insulin, but much less. How do your doctors explain it?
no, am type 1...when I first was diagnosed. my sugar was over 800 I was in hospital for a few days trying to lower it..i was constantly urinating and they tried pills first but went to humalog and lantus on a sliding scale..I've had been taking 20units 3 times a day for last 11 years. started losing alot of weight on my own and went down to 10 units twice a day and then last 2 months i've only taken 2 injections of 10 units and I dont feel bad at all. i'm still losing weight slowly
I don't see how you could have been a type I diabetic. Your after eating blood sugar is not high. Your fasting blood sugar is a little high. What does your doctor say? Are you sure you weren't a type II diabetic?
128 and 143...and before when I was taking insulin for the last 11 years they have been over 200 at times..now that I am not taking anything I feel really good and I was losing weight as i was taking insulin and still losing weight after stopping insulin...
What are your sugar readings - fasting - after eating?
and I know i'm a type 1 diabetic because I have been taking humalog and lantus for last 11 years and havent in the last 2 months with the exception of 1 or 2 injections.
I take that back. I have taken 1 to 2 injections in that 2 month span. before I was on 20 units 3 times daily I lowered the dose to 10 units 3 times a day as I lost weight because the 20 units was way to much and the last 2 months I have only taken 1 to 2 shots of 10 units each.
