[IP] Too much insulin

All the medical school and internship books say the average adult needs
about 80 to 100 units a day of insulin. This means a 70 kg man. I weigh 73
kg and use 93 units /day
Women use more if menstrating or pregnant. Too much insulin = slow steady
gain in weight because you eat up to your excess insulin, If you get ketones
when you get sick or tired, you are probably not on too much insulin. As
always consult your doctor YMMV
