Hello Ankita , Welcome to DF and I find you frustrated and can be moody as myself can be also although don't take meds to control depression. I am 47 YO Male who had this disease for 37 years and there fore a type 1. What's your control like as the Blood Glucose should be in or near to 6 / 108.

You will need to know about Carbohydrates and counting this as this will be a way to loose weight. You can also exercise to lower BG too.

Hope this helps...

Insulins Novorapid and Levemir.
So I am well armed to enjoy food of any kind!!!
