Re: Newbie on insulin: I didn't have it w/ me so I ate dinner w/o taking it?
Go ahead and take it UNLESS you have a problem with getting hypoglycemic at night, or if it's really close to your bedtime. I would skip it, or take a blood sugar reading. Anything less than 150 (8.3 mmol)
I would skip....this is a good thing to bring up with your doctor next time you visit.
Your doctor is smart, and has placed your injection so that the release of the insulin coincides with the release of the food. But what will happen when you forget, is that your sugar will remain high from the meal.... so using the insulin, even though it's late, still reduces the time-level product of the sugar.
