Hi!I'm new to this site but have been diabetic 11 years now. Been recently exercising a lot, BGs are out of control so just switched to Levemir hoping it will stabilise. Funny thing, dieting and exercising a lot - I'm losing zero weight. At tips? Been at it 6 months x

I don't think this is an uncommon issue with type ones.......

I have seen myself losing weight with diet alone but there comes a point where it will just stall....

what level of exercise are you doing....?

Thanks for your reply. I do a mix of resistance and cardio about 5 times a week. It's always high intensity and I've never exercised as hard or eaten as well. It just baffles me x

By out of control BGs, do you mean lots of hypos? Constantly treating hypos with unwanted carbs won't help with weight loss. Note that I am not advocating not treating hypos at all, but just providing a possible explanation.
