diabetes patient on insulin loses weight continuously

Resolved Question:

I am a diabetes 1 patient on insulin. I have controlled my sugars to a good extend. But while eating full non carb meals, I am losing weight. I take 5 Lantus units a day. My typical blood sugar levels are less than 100mg/dl. My physician said that in my case, I have a rare onset of type 1 diabetes. I will be left with no beta calls soon. Why is this happening? Please help me out with this.

In the close examination of your case, it is understood that your well controlled diet is not giving sufficient calories to maintain weight. That is what causing a weight loss. Now, what is your weight goal? What is your weight now? I would recommend you to work with a registered dietician. It will help you to have a well planned exercise plan and diet plan which can help in maintaining weight and good health. A dietician can teach you how to determine how much food of how much calories is needed per meal and in what quantities. He will help in selecting nutrient rich food for a balanced weight and optimal health.
