Asknadia: Accidentally Injected 50 Units Of Novolog Insulin Instead Of Lantus

Dear Nadia: I was going to watch a little TV before going to sleep I was wanting to wait up on my husband to get home from work. I grabbed my Lantus and took it in to the bedroom so I wouldn’t forget to take it before falling asleep. After getting all comfy in bed I thought I should just go ahead and take my Lantus. I take 50 units of Lantus at bed time and 8 units of Novalog with meals. My Blood sugar before going to bed was 136 so I get my Lantus pen dial up 50 units and inject it…… as soon as I withdrew the pin I knew something was wrong, I had just opened that Lantus pin the night before there shouldn’t be much used out of it but the pen was almost all empty. OMG what have I done? That’s my Novalog pen I told myself. I had just injected myself with 50 units of fast acting insulin. I’ve never did anything like that before I was freaking out. I knew this wasn’t good I knew I had to do something and do it quick. I ran to the computer and typed in “I took to much Novalog what do I do?” The first thing I read was call 911. I called my husband he didn’t answer I sent a text ” I need to get to the ER NOW” . I started getting dressed. While I was dressing my hus Continue reading >>

    I'm a type 1, I usually take a long acting dose each morning and a short acting one with meals. Somehow I forgot the long acting this morning - this doesn't happen often, but it did today.
    I'm planning to take correction doses / extra units with my meals, do extra tests between meals, and possibly take an extra dose or two to correct.
    I wondered if anyone here could offer any advice to me? Or tell me how you've handled this?

    a little high is better than a little low IMO. I'd just test often through the day and correct with fast acting as needed.

    Inject 50% at the next available opportunity, 75% at the next scheduled Basal and then back to 100%. This will re-introduce the Basal with only a little conflicting overlap, you can adjust any swing using Bolus. It's annoying but better than going a whole 24H without Basal, then another 24H for your Basal to become balanced.

Serrapeptase Dosage http://www.serrapeptase.info/buy-serr... Is Serrapeptase the Miracle Enzyme? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcKYfM... Serrapeptase enzyme dosage is relative to the condition that is being treated. Serrapeptase is available in liquid and tablet form, so that will also determine the dosage. The dosage for serrapeptase is problematic, because there is no excessive dosing requirement. It is wise to consult with a pharmacist or medical professional before taking a dosage, which is larger than what is prescribed on the package. Treatments, which are enzyme based, can require radically different dosages depending on the individual unique body chemistry. A small woman may require more of this enzyme than a large man, because how much people need is not relative to weight or overall body size. What is important with regard to dosage levels is how effective the dose is in relieving particular symptoms. This medication should be taken on an empty stomach or two hours after eating for best results. Anti-inflammatory conditions require one to three tablespoons, if no food has been ingested prior to taking the medication. An arterial blockage usually requires one to three tablespoons. Serrapeptase capsules generally come in 500 mg size, are enteric-coated and 80,000 SU'. It also called Serratiopeptidaseis. Cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, such as COPD may require a dosage of 80,000 IUs, approximately three times during the day. This dosage is not considered too much, if the patient does not get relief using it at lower levels. As noted previously the amount needed for each individual is relative to how their bodies respond to the enzymatic treatments. Anti-aging benefits may require people to take 80,000 IUs three times during the day. Individuals with type-2 diabetes can take up to two pills, three times during the day. When treating scarring, most people get noticeable results by taking one tablet morning, noon, and night. Most people with scars find it helpful to photograph themselves prior to starting treatments and taking another photograph after three months to verify the changes. Serrapeptase has been used successfully in Europe and Asia for many years. It usefulness in the treatment of numerous physical conditions is becoming increasingly popular in Western medicine. There are medical professionals who understand the dosage levels for patients and they should be consulted if an person has any questions. Before starting any treatment regimen never self-diagnose, or take any enzyme medications without seeking guidance from a qualified holistic practitioner.

Getting The Right Dosage

Even for those on Lantus® for a while, it may take a little time to get to the right dose of insulin. Your doctor may change your Lantus® dose several times in the first few weeks. This is to be expected. For best results, keep taking your Lantus® as prescribed, and keep talking to your doctor. What if You Miss a Dose? Your doctor will guide you on when to take Lantus®. Ask him or her what to do if you forget to take your insulin, so you can be prepared in advance in case it ever happens. Here are a few ways to remember to take your Lantus® once-a-day: 3 Helpful Tips Make yourself a reminder If you take your Lantus® at night, it might also be a good idea to leave yourself a note on your nightstand as a way to remember. If you take it in the morning, put your supplies where you can't miss them—next to your toothbrush, for example. Keep out of reach of children. Add it to your other daily "to dos" Many people take Lantus® right after brushing their teeth in the evening or while making breakfast in the morning. Set an Alarm Some people set alarms on their wristwatches or mobile devices to remind them when to take their Lantus®. “We changed doses a couple of times when I st Continue reading >>

    So yesterday i forgot to take my Lantus shot which i take at night. Of course i woke up with a high BG (255), and i stayed high most of the day (although i took a couple extra units of novorapid). 40 minutes before lunch i finally came back to normal, i was 118. My BG before lunch was 77 =]
    i was wondering if anyone has ever forgotten to take his/her lantus shot before?
    what did u do to get your BGs back to normal?

    Thanks
    The lousy and careless diabetic, Sarah

    Hey..hey..hey...don't be so hard on yourself. I used to hate that night time insulin (Levemir)...I'd fall asleep w/o taking it on more than one night. Most of the time I'd wake up and take it...not always though. You did the correct thing...proably the only thing that you could do. The important thing is that you got your numbers back in line reasonably soon.

  3. Brigitte

    that's why I take my Lantus when I wake up , at 7 in the morning. Sarah, was it too late to inject less of Levemir when you woke up?

What Happens If You Forget To Take Insulin?

Why not ask your diabetes team for a customised set of instructions for what to do if you forget your insulin? Then if it occurs you will already have the information you need. Make sure you ask for information that includes the following: 1. The amount of time after a missed injection e.g. Give x units if <2 hours after; Give x units if > 4 hours etc. 2. What your blood glucose levels are like at the time e.g. if high you don't need to drop the dose as much as if your levels are low and giving the injection later 3. What activity levels you will be doing - if doing more activity in the afternoon and levels already low, then the insulin dose will be lower than usual when giving it later. 4. The action times of your insulin/s - you need to consider the length of time the insulin will be working fior These 4 issues all influence the amount of insulin you would need to give yourself when you have missed the usual injection time. Why not book a session with your diabetes educator to go through the various components to feel more able to manage this situation. Everyone forgets their insulin sometimes but knowing what to do can make you feel better when it happens - because it is very li Continue reading >>
