Insulin makes you hungry all the time!
For some it seems to do so, for some it doesn't.
In my experience. The injectables. No. I'm hungry when I'm hungry. 95% of the time i can't do breakfast. I will have a brunch or lunch, then supper. I can fast for 12 hours, do a gig then want a meal? (Sing for my supper.)
However, regarding BG management. The urge to snack if it happens, may depend & corresponds on where BG wise I'm coming down from... & how rapid the correction brought me back in range?
I'm pretty responsive to Novorapid. (where other T1s report issues. But i'm not heavy on the personal carb consumption.)
Not always. My brother is a type 2 on insulin and he has found that, since he went on insulin, his hunger has dropped.
When I was on nova rapid I was hungry all the time and I also put a lot of weight on too. I found it a nightmare. I’m glad I’m not on it now.
So you meant "insulin makes Me hungry"? Using 'you' makes it apply to all.
No I didn’t mean that at all! I was told by my DSN at the time, the insulin will make you hungry so then you have to inject then eat and it just goes round in a cycle.
And is this how it works for you?
Many of us don't have the experience that insulin makes you hungry.
I was told insulin makes the user hungry too, and it was the case for me, I think many don’t have that symptom and many do ♀️
Your dSN is wrong for most people
Yarp, 46 years for me of pretty much the same advice for dodgy advised dosage.. Compensate by snacking.
I got a little fed up of being force fed?
Lol, my 90 year old mother still can't get the idea out of her head that I can't leave the house on a short trip without a packed lunch.. (& she has Alzheimers.)
Yes it did make me hungry, I was eating all the time. I’m not on insulin now thankfully.
