Re: [IP] Weight Gain?

Don't forget that when you are out of good control the body loses a little
weight due to high sugars etc...
Now that your on the pump I'll bet your HGA1c is better , which concludes
that the control is better, hence you gain weight because the body is able
to use the food properly, instead of the body feeding on itself.
Art. (it seems true with myself anyway)
