I messed up with my 7030 insulin today...need advice

I just started on Nova 7030 insulin about six days ago. I normally take 30 min. before breakfast (15 units) and 30 min. before dinner (20 units). I messed up today because I'm not used to taking my insulin with me. I had a hot dog on a piece of grain bread for lunch, and stayed over at my dad's all day, and we had a barbeque and ate around 4 and I had a hot dog on bun and hamburger on bun as well as some potato salad and cole slaw. I passed it off thinking I only had a hot dog for lunch so this would be a late lunch and then I would take insulin later, but I still haven't taken it and it's 7:10 p.m. because I am not going to eat again after having the barbeque at my dad's. can anyone tell me how to proceed, if I should take the evening dose anyway and eat a piece of fruit after 30 min. I'm so used to taking oral meds after my meals that this insulin business is hard for me to adjust to, but I know it will have dire consequences if I don't smarten up. Any advice is appreciated.

Re: I messed up with my 7030 insulin today...need advice

I think the best thing to do is to put in a call to your endocrinologist. Although we all know how we would best handle the situation, I think the only person who SHOULD make that decision is your doctor. Please don't put off taking your insulin otherwise you will start to feel terrible, and it's not good for you. I'm not going to lecture though since I know it can be tough to remember medication at times. Hope you get ahold of your doc.
