The usual way: Eating less calories and burning off more calories is the key. Work with your doc to make sure your thyroid levels are right. You may need lower Insulin doses to match your lower food (esp carbs) intake. You don't want to have to eat extra to treat or prevent lows! work with your doc to help make these adjustments. As you lose, you may need less Insulin & less thyroid hormone, so keep checking.
