    NOVOLOG, a question for those that inject

    I use Novolog injections prior to meals. I have a couple of questions.
    If I forget to inject "Just before my meal", how far into the meal can I still inject?
    How long of a time span is, "Just before meals"?

  2. DWine

    you can inject anytime during the meal or even right after
    you might have a little higher peak in BG but I have done it up to one hour after with no problems

    Thanks, I am the chief cook and bottle washer around here, reward for being the first to retire. Often during a meal while setting the table and finishing the cooking and putting the food on the table I forget to inject.
    This helps a lot, because before when I forgot I just let it go and told myself that I would work harder to remember.
    I am on metaforimin, 60 units of Lantus at night and 15 units of Novolog before meals.

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA A black Labrador saved the life of a young boy with Type-1 diabetes. The Nuttall family was fast asleep last week and no alarms were going off to warn Dorrie Nuttall to check her 7-year-old diabetic son's blood sugar. That's when their dog "Jedi" saved the day. Jedi, a diabetic alert dog, sensed her son Luke's blood sugar was too low, so he jumped off the bed, then back on again, but Nuttall didn't wake up, according to her March 4 Facebook post. So Jedi laid on top of Nuttall until she woke up. "He jumped off the bed and half on and would not budge when I told him to get back up," Nuttall wrote. Jedi bowed to signal a low alert, prompting Nuttall to check Luke's monitoring machine, which indicated that her son was in stable condition. Jedi bowed again and would not get back in bed. That's when Nuttall knew something was wrong and pricked Luke's finger and discovered his glucose level was 57 mg/dl -- a low level. "Luke was laying right next to me, just inches away from and, and without Jedi I would have had no idea that he was dropping out of a safe range," she wrote. Luke Nuttall was diagnosed with Type-1 Diabetes when he was just 2-years-old. His mother Dorr

Diabetes Alert Dog Brings Comfort, Relief To Boy And His Family

Children with autism improve communication using horses and iPads Diabetes alert dog brings comfort, relief to boy and his family Kermit, a 2-year-old service dog trained to detect fluctuations in human blood sugar levels, helps 9-year-old Kiernan Sullivan monitor his type 1 diabetes, giving Kiernans parents some extra relief. Uncontrolled blood sugar levels can lead to problems such as neuropathy, limb loss and even blindness, so specially trained dogs, along with tools such as glucose monitors that help keep blood sugar levels within the normal range, can improve the quality of diabetes patients lives, said physician Andrew Ahmann. The Oregonian (Portland) When 9-year-old Kiernan Sullivan started school this month, he attends each class in the company of his new best friend a 2-year-old service dog named Kermit. Its fun but hard, Kiernan says of his new charge. You have to feed him, take him out to bathroom and take him out for walks. Kiernan has Type 1 diabetes , which usually affects children and young adults and accounts for about 5 percent of all diabetes cases. It occurs when the body does not produce insulin, a hormone needed to convert starches, sugars and other food into Continue reading >>
