I am a 60 year old male. My height is 5'9" and my weight 150 lbs. Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes three years ago at 140 lbs weight. I went on with Metformin 2 x 1000 mg per day. It worked well for a while, but not good enough. Then I opted Insulin and gained some weight of about 4 lbs, but stopped Insulin due to inconvenience of injections. Then, I had Jentadueto for a while. Now, I just started Invokana 100 mg and it is bringing down the numbers greatly. 20 years ago, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Now, it is in normal range with Synthroid. My blood pressure is also normal. I feel great, but I am now down to 125 lbs. I do not exercise with a fear of losing more weight. I also have attached some test result. Why am I not gaining weight?
