Re: [IP] weight gain at infusion site?

 I agree I think the weight gain is due to better control. And the glucose
tablets we eat for low
 BGs don't help! I know when my control has been off I have lost significant
amounts of
weight. Also stress seems to help with weight loss but I wouldn't suggest it.

 I think the question is why does the weight gain seem to be concentrated on the
stomach &
other areas where insulin is infused?
