A very important question about using insulin

As far as I know (and from experience), there are no immediate side effects from using insulin providing you are using it correctly, apart from some fat-gain. I do know that many obese type 2 diabetics are insulin resistant because of chronically high levels of insulin througout the day (which is caused by their bad eating). Insulin resistence = fat gain (due to your body pumping out insulin 24/7 to counteract this resistence). However, jacking up your insulin levels post-workout using food i.e. whey protein and maltodextrin/dextrose does not have any detrimental effect on insulin sensitivity. So does this mean that using supraphysiologic levels of insulin (by injecting humalog), will not affect insulin sensitivity in the same way as eating sugary and fatty foods all day will? If it does affect insulin sensitivity, is this permanent or temporary? Type 2 diabetics don't usually recover, so this leads me to believe that using insulin could potentially cause permanent damage. I'd appreciate any help/suggestions!

I just had a thought - type-1 diabetics, who do not produce insulin at all and have to inject it must sometimes inject too much insulin accidentally or have to inject a lot if they're eating a lot of carbs. They don't seem fatter than they should be - my mother, a type-1 diabetic has an extremely low bodyfat percentage.

Can you define too much insulin or staying on for too long?

So does your insulin sensitivity return to normal once you stop using it for a while?

It will affect your sensitivity. it numbs the sensors.... when u overload them. and same as your penis' head it when it gets desensitized it can come back a little but not much. but the penis gets abused alot more than our insulin receptors lol... maybe.. well it depends how much u abuse insulin i guess. just eat clean for the rest of your life, and sweets and u'll be fine.

Actually, many believe that post workout insulin use is actually easier on the body than forcing endogenous insulin release from the amounts of simple sugars that are taken in. Not saying I believe this, but it's something to look at.

Kind of hard to burn out your pancrease, if you're injecting you're own insulin, and it's kind of hard to shut it down all together even if your taking it all day, you have to make your own when your asleep. So how will it make us Diabetic?

Very interesting advice y'all gave, it helps me a lot, but I have another question about insulin: I wheigh 151 pnds. and I'm about to start a cycle of Anapolon for 6 weeks with Sustenon and then cut the A. and Sust. and shoot Trenbolone with Nandralone for about 8 weeks. Someone sugested that beginning week 3 I shoot 6 I.U. per day just after workout to boost the cycle. My question is Is that good advice? How long should I shoot Insulin? Thanks.
