    Hmm, got any T2s in your family? I'm certainly more insulin resistant than I used to be....

    What types of food are spiking? Your natural insulin resistance might have changed which means you may need to juggle your insulin to carb ratios about, if that's what you use :)

    Have you been diagnosed fairly recently? It could be that the so called honeymoon period is coming to an end and so you simply require more insulin for the food rather than becoming insulin resistant? x
