The only thing that has worked for me has been to alleviate stress. Increasing insulin doages, eating less, etc hasn't worked in my experience. Of course, there are a million ways to relieve stress and everyone seems to have a particular way of dealing with it. When I'm moderately stressed, exercise and music help. When I'm under severe stress, the only thing that works is confronting the situation head on in the calmest, most rational way possible. For example, I'm in college and this past semester for a good week or two I had a lot of problem with my sites (the tissue was dead and wasn't absorbing insulin...seemingly anywhere lol). I was also taking the heaviest courseload I have ever taken. I freaked out for a while, then took some deep breaths, assessed the situation, contacted professors, disability services, asked for extensions, came up with a plan as to how to get everything that needed to be done done. So my advice is definitely to treat this as a mental health issue (by that I just mean stress ;)) and not an endocrine issue. Figure out why you're stressed and do whatever you can to alleviate it. If it's a long term problem that's causing you stress and you think there's nothing you can do about it, get help from friends, colleagues, family (haha didn't mean to put family last). One last thing: in my experience if you don't treat the systemic issue and instead rely entirely on coping mechanisms that only scratch at the surface, you're only going to exacerbate the problem. HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!
