    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?

    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.
