Unfortunately diabetes and overweight conditions go hand in hand. Most people who have diabetes are overweight and need to monitor their blood-sugar levels. If insulin levels are too high it will promote weight gain. It is highly recommended you work with your doctor closely when using insulin to regulate blood-sugar levels. If you use diet and exercise to control your blood-sugar levels you will achieve your goals more readily.
If you are having trouble reaching your weight loss goals, it may be attributable to the Prescription Medications you are taking. Some medications that contain steroids will cause you to gain some weight. Other medications like anti-seizure drugs and psychotropic drugs may also inhibit your weight loss efforts. Work with your doctor to find a medication that will do the job needed without obstructing your weight loss goals.
