[IP] Gaining weight while sick?


I often gain weight when I take more insulin.  I have experienced the same
thing... when I am sick and my blood sugar is high, I take extra insulin and
gain 3 or 4 lbs even though I am not eating any more calories or getting less
exercise.  My weight goes back down once I quit taking the extra insulin.  I
believe there is a direct correlation although some people will disagree.

fluid?  ....Christina
