If you taking to much insulin will that make lose weight and when you get up in the morning and your blood sugar be 69 to 78 do you still take insulin?

What is a good carb intake to lose weight and keep blood sugar from dropping too low? This happened with a fad diet I tried. I am not a diabetic.
QUALITY NOT QUANTITY: The more complex carbs are better in this regard. White flour carbs are very quickly absorbed and can cause a sudden surge in Insulin levels, which will invariably drop you like a bad marriage within a few hours. More complex carbs will get absorbed slower, hence preventing or decreasing Insulin spikes. As a rule of thumb, never eat carbs by themselves, no more than 20-30 grams per meal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Don't stop: Continue increasing the metformin in steps to minimize any potential side effects. The most effective dose is a total of 2000 mg/day in divided doses with meals. Don't stop even if your glucose returns to normal. It won't drop below normal due to metformin alone, and it has many beneficial and preventive effects other than just glucose levels. ...Read more

When the sugars fall in between these ranges (100-125), this would be considered impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes (borderline diabetes). ...Read more
