Weight gain is a common side effect for people who take insulin Ã¢â‚¬â€ a hormone that regulates the absorption of sugar (glucose). The more insulin you use to control your blood sugar level, the more glucose that gets into your cells and the less glucose that’s wasted in your urine. Glucose that your cells don’t use accumulates as fat. If you continue to eat as you did before, you’ll likely gain weight when you start taking insulin.
An easier way to explain as well as understand how insulin works is this: you could eat more food than your body actually needed and still don’t gain much weight because your body didn’t use all food available due to diabetes and before taking insulin. But with insulin, your body uses food properly, and you may need less food than you think.

Use diuretics or change brands. When your diet is insufficient your body doesn’t have what is needed to produce neurotransmitters.
