I am writing to share my experience with a few months use of REZ-V with respect to my type 1 diabetes. I normally have very good glucose control, with my main problem being that I often go hypoglycemic as I am extremely sensitive to insulin and it is often that I overshoot my doses by 1 or 2 units and this causes significant problems. I also have similar problems overnight where I have been known to wake up at <50 mg/dL once a week on average.
Well anyways a few weeks into taking REZ-V I had noticed a shift in my overnight trends. Normally, if anything, I will have to watch out for hypoglycemia overnight and make sure to eat a little before bed (without taking fast-acting insulin) to cover what the long-acting insulin (lantus) will do overnight. After taking REZ-V I began noticing that no longer was I going low overnight, but I was actually going hyperglycemic quite frequently.
Now my notes are not the most detailed and I don’t log my daily insulin doses and meals, so I can’t be entirely exact in my statements. But something had changed. In fact there were times that I wouldn’t eat anything before bed and would go hyperglycemic overnight. Before REZ-V this would never happen.
So since I am fairly convinced that REZ-V was causing me to have hyperglycemia overnight I am wondering why. There are two probable causes:
1)The enhanced testosterone levels were doing it, or
2)The REZ-V was beginning to change the way my body was excreting glucose overnight
Is there anyone out there who does daily blood sugar testing (whether you are type 1, type 2 or just do it for fun) that has taken either pro-testosterone/test compounds and noticed that it caused them to have higher blood sugar levels? Or the same situation but only with REZ-V?
This is a very strange occurrence, but since I have 20+ years experience with T1D I am certain it is true. I have since stopped taking REZ-V (I was starting to gain too much weight plus the blood sugar changes were worrying me) and have gone back to my normal status of needing to watch out for overnight hypoglycemia every night.
Please if you have information let me know, I am very interested to find out what was doing this…
