It might be the insulin you are on? Lantus has been known for weight gain

Should I try and lower my dosage?

You could possibly talk to your doctor about switching. I've seen a few people go from Lantus to Levimir. I've just stopped Lantus as I've started on a pump

Okay will do :) oh and congratulations hope you enjoy it. Another question when your on the pump you don't have to take Lantus?

Thank you :) no need for any long acting as the pump delivers small amounts of insulin constantly. E.g. My pump gives me 0.65 units an hour. It's wonderful not waiting up to have my Lantus

Omg that's amazing! I will look in to it :) and thank you again great advice

I thought that too until I started looking into Lantus as a cause for my tummy problems (but my Endo thinks it's my high levels).
