Diabetic weight gain type 1

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic weight gain type 1


Avatar n tn If I followed a strict ADA diet while body building 4x a week, and also trying to gain weight by muscle…would I still reduce my chance of Type 2. Losing weight is not an option for me. Also I only average about 6 hrs a sleep for the past 5 year and drink tons of sodas.
Avatar m tn I am 21 years old, had a had a baby a year ago and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes almost 1 month and a half ago. And I have definitely noticed a significant amount of weight gain. I am still trying to get a handle on my diabetes. I am using FlexPen and take 2 shots of 24 units a day. I am starting to get depressed by all the weight gain and even just the daily fight with my Blood Glucose.
Avatar f tn my weight has always been the same as I am a type 1 skinny diabetic.. I was through with menopause before my surgery in September but holy cow.. I have now gained 9 pounds which I am on no drugs at all except my insulin... My regular doctor said it was the hysterectomy... hog wash... he was trying to be nice... more weight for me equals more insulin.. not a good thing... I am walking every day buts thats all.. if you come up with the way to lose it let me know...
471113 tn?1245112420 This was my 2nd time treating, and I did gain alot of weight after that . I mean alot. to the point became diabetic. So like I said.. I had it to lose. My sugar is perfect now. Just do not want to do it all over again. Exercise is helping, building some muscle too. So I guess 20 lbs is not so bad for 6 mos. I gained about an average of 1 lb per week.. Just gotta keep it here .. and do have to watch your eating habits after getting appetite back. Which I lost completely on tx.
Avatar f tn Last thyroid labs well within range and I'm not type 2 diabetic. I live with a type 1 diabetic so testing is not a problem. Though his insulin took him to a weight of 400 lbs. Hubby had a gastric bypass and is now 200. Adrenal fatigue....... never heard of that. All which I'm sure is costly and I am uninsured.
Avatar f tn If you do this, then your blood sugar levels may drop some because you are eating less, and so the insulin dose may end up being less. But don't confuse the smaller insulin dose with why you lose weight. Many of us type 1 folks take insulin every day and don't gain weight. It's just that the foods have to be balanced with calorie requirements.
Avatar n tn I have been researching this issue and have not found any different studies between men and women losing weight with type 1. You didn't say if you are lifting weights or doing strength training. This can add muscle and toning and can cause a bit of weight gain. I know how frustrating this can be. College also can be full of stress and this may effect your goal. Please let me look into this further and I will post soon. You will probably get posts from others so keep in touch.
Avatar n tn Are you a type 1 or type 2 diabetic? He is type 2 he started taking a new medication called byetta. You inject in your arm before you meals. My husband has lost 40 lbs in the last 6 months. He just can't eat like he used to since he has been on the byetta. It curves your appetite and apparently helps your body produce it's own insulin. It might be something you want to run by your endo doctor. Let me know.
Avatar n tn I am type 1 diabetic as well as having 2 other auto immune dissorders one being addison's disease.I am currently on Lantus,Humalog,Florinef,Prednisone and Lexapro just to name a few I get extremley moody due to my hypoglycemic attacks as well as my hyperglycemic attacks on top of the florinef and prednisone which are supposed to cause mood swings as well.
Avatar n tn I am a type 1 diabetic and I have talked to my Dr about c sections and vaginally deliveries and she says our goal for me is to do it vaginally unless complications make it so I cant. but my sister in law had a c section because she had some birthing complications she wasn't a diabetic but she did it like a champ and all went well. the baby's dad even got to be in the room with her still.
Avatar m tn I was on Byetta for 1 and a half and kept weight down and was put on oral meds and my levels was still in 400s thats when I start Lantus. I can't deal with the weight diet exercise does not help. What should I do.
195469 tn?1388326488 This old lady can not tolerate any weight gain, so of course, I am taking in less food to combat the weight gain. With being a diabetic, curently controlled with diet; I can't afford to gain weight and be back on insulin. I worked too hard to keep off that weight.
Avatar m tn Hi there! Well; weight control, rather than weight loss/ gain should be the goal of diabetic control. While some may have a tendency of losing/ gaining weight faster than others, the aim of a healthy diet and exercise should be to maintain a healthy BMI. If you have taken to a healthy dies and regular exercise, it is always advised to stick with it, even though the results may be slower than others.

Avatar f tn I want to gain weight. I hope this doesn't freak everyone out but I would love to gain 20#'s. Am type 1 diabetic and also have Hashimoto condition. Muscle mass is in decline. Will try to increase muscle as I know it will increase my weight and stamina.
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.

2009318 tn?1328029037 Thanks for the input you really helped me a lot. I have gained 15/16 lbs in 21 weeks which is right on track with what my doc says.I have an insulin pump as well as a CGM attached to me trying to monitor the patterns of high/low blood sugars. I teach Spin and exercise regularly. Its weird that when I am teaching a Spin class I can't feel the baby kick but when my blood sugar goes high I can feel her kick me a lot.
Avatar f tn Is there any pills I can take to help me lose weight I'm a type 1 diabetic
Avatar n tn Try to get a pump, especially if you are a Type 1. (I am a Type 1 Diabetic.) I don't know why this is not currently the standard for anyone who takes insulin as it makes a big difference and is the most effective treatment for stabilizing blood sugars. If your insurance denies you the benefit of this after your endo prescribes on.then be sure to APPEAL their decision - they are making a monetary decision and probably are hoping you won't appeal.
Avatar n tn Hi Janet, I am a type 1 diabetic, needing a change. I feel I'm packing on a few extra kilos and desperatly want to shed them. I have done the "no carb" thing before and like you mentioned, it worked a treat. Can I ask you - what do you eat for breakfast? Would you ever have yoghurt for example? I am wanting to cut out carbs again but not sure to what extreme as yoghurt also has a set amount of carb.
Avatar n tn Very discouraging when weight gain for a diabetic is not healthy. Good luck with you daughter...My dad became Type 1 at 18 months, my brother at 12 years and me at 33 during my pregnancy with my only child. My dad and brother are doing great and have been diabetic for a LONG time. Good luck.
