Does anyone have any tips on how to survive insulin resistance? I am 24 weeks pregnant and I have noticed my insulin requirements have went up a lot lately. I had maybe 30 carbs for breakfast and my post meal number was 264. I took 2.5 units insulin. Normally 1 unit brings me down 40 points. Well 2 hours later I was still 201. So with lunch I added an additional 2 units on to my bolus. Still high. I'm so frustrated!!!
I have been trying to eat lower carb meals/snacks. I snack on cucumbers, carrots, veggies, etc. whenever I feel hungry. But they don't fill me up and I still feel hungry. Also, I have always struggled to gain weight. My pre pregnancy weight was 94 lbs and I am 5'5". I am now 106 lbs at 24 weeks pregnant. I was gaining weight at a good rate but I haven't really gained anything, not even a couple ounces in the past 2 weeks because I've been trying to eat stuff that won't spike my blood so bad. My OB wants me to gain more weight. He says I should be 125-130 when I'm full term. But how do I gain weight on a low carb diet?
I HATE INSULIN RESISTANCE
