    I am on mixed insulin only. I have heard that insulin can make you hungry. I am hungry all the time. I am also starting to put on weight. I try not over eat but the cravings are strong I'm always snacking on something to try and stop the hunger.

    Any one else experiencing this on insulin
    It's driving me nuts as I wanna try and loose weight.

    Rosieroo - I think @urbanracer might be online just now. I seem to remember he uses a mixed insulin, but I could be wrong.

    Urbanracer is T1, but he might be able to comment on your insulin.
