Me again... :)
How much insulin do you require on average, and what is your body weight?
I know the lower the body weight, the lower the insulin requirement... but I feel like my daily insulin requirement is still uncharacteristically low.
I (I'm a male) weigh about 145 lbs and take about 25 units per day - I'm on a pump and only use fast acting. I know a girl my size (diabetic for 15 yrs) who takes about 25 units per meal - she's also on a pump! What in the world is wrong with me here? I was diagnosed about 3 years ago... could I still be honeymooning? Does your insulin requirement continue to increase as the years go on or am I just special?
EDIT (more info): I am 6 feet tall. Yes, I am incredibly skinny... I always have been.
