I see that you are just beginning your adjustment to being a diabetic. It can be difficult. Changing eating and exercise patterns represent a major lifestyle change and it does take time to adapt. So give yourself a little room to make the changes you need to.
We have many members who have discussed Diabetes and I hope that they will join you in this discussion. I would especially like to invite a Member, @ihatediabetes to speak to this issue of change of lifestyle. She has made many successful changes. Also, @retiredteacher and mentor @gailb
"Symptoms Type 1 diabetes signs and symptoms can appear relatively suddenly and may include:
Bed-wetting in children who previously didn't wet the bed during the night
Unintended weight loss
Irritability and other mood changes
Fatigue and weakness
However, from your post it sounds as if the extreme hunger did not begin until you started insulin usage. Is that correct?
Have you experienced other symptoms from this list as well?
I hope that you have a good adjustment to life as a diabetic. I look forward to hearing from you again and hearing how you are doing.
