The more insulin I use, the more weight I gain. It has been that way ever since I started modern day insulins. To lose the weight i reduced my daily carb intake to 130 per day. that required less insulin. That combined with exercise enabled me to lose weight, When my doctor added Metformin to the mix I lost even more weight. Now I am only one pound above my ideal weight. I know some type 2 diabetics who eat as little as 50 carbs per day. They use insulin and Metformin like me. So few carbs require much less insulin, and they have lost a lot of weight.
