Re: [IPk] stinging bolus



Nathan

Sadly as your insulin delivery more closely follows the non diabetic
physiological pattern you get the same problems we all have - if your
calorie intake is higher than your daily needs you will put weight on.


The other thing that may happen is that as your can now make better use of
your dietary intake and you are doing regular exercise you may put weight on
as muscle which is heavier than fat
