Diabetes Medications, and the Consequences of Forgetting For many diabetes patients, taking their medications on schedule is a challenge. Some forget regularly, and others miss a dose here or there. Many people with diabetes rely on oral medication or insulin, or both, to control their blood glucose levels. "People with diabetes must take responsibility for their day-to-day care, and keep blood glucose levels from going too low or too high," advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The vast majority of diabetics control their blood sugar with medication or insulin. Twelve percent of adults with diagnosed diabetes take both insulin and oral medications, 53 percent take oral medications only, 19 percent take insulin only and 15 percent do not take either, according to federal health statistics. What happens if people don't adhere to their medication schedules? The potential for severe consequences is tremendous. In a 2004 study that appeared in Diabetes Care, researchers found that people with type 2 diabetes who missed doses of their medications had a greater risk of being hospitalized. The risk of hospitalization was more than twice as high among type 2 diabetics wh Continue reading >>

    What will happen if you miss a dose of insulin?

    I have been a diabetic, Type 2 since 1986. It is not easy to watch what you eat,and to exercise when you have bad legs and a sensitive stomach. Also, I am not getting any younger, I am 60 years old. I take insulin 4 times a day, I test 4 times a day. Can anyone give me advice and be able to tell me what happens if I miss a dose of insulin?

    The short answers is that you woo have higher blood sugar levels temporarily, as said. You will also need to take a little more next time to correct the high, that will depend on the insulin and your treatment plan. The long answer is that depending on how your body works you may start to see stones in your urine and if you go too long without inwulin, possibly go into DKA. That would be if your body does not produce any insulin and your blood sugar gets quite high.

    Hello there! I use insulin via a pump. If I just get my basal (continuous insulin) and don't carb in (bolus), my numbers shoot way up on. Essentially, yes, without taking your insulin like you are suppose to, your numbers will go up. How Much? Every person is going to be different because of our metabolism

I may have forgotten to take my medication, but this is still sound advice.

Forgot To Take Insulin

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. Help! Last night I forgot to take my insulin shot with my dinner. I didn't realise until I went to bed and I tested my blood sugar level before taking the long acting insulin and my test was 14.2. This morning everything was normal. I have only been type 1 for 1 month, I was having dinner with friends and having a great time etc and just didn't even think about it. I feel so stupid, who forgets to give themself insulin?? this is my life now, how could I be so irresponsible. I was too frightened to give the shot hours after dinner so just gave the long acting. What are you supposed to do when this happens? This happens to all of us probably at least once. You are lucky in that you are probably still in your honeymoon period...meaning you still produce some insulin on your own. That's probqably why you woke up with a normal reading. Also the long acting insulin probably helped to prevent you from goin too high. What I would have done is tested after dinner and then corrected the high. Then I would wait two Continue reading >>

Forget To Take Your Insulin

What happens if you forget to bring your insulin for meals or cannot due to some circumstance? Any major problems when you finally do get your shot? I know the b.s. will be up but is there any other complications from having it done even a few hours later? Just the high BG I'd imagine. Taking the bolus later might be tricky since the carbs are still being digested. So if you take enough insulin to deal with the high but the BG is still going up the bolus will be inefficient. If you take the amount of insulin you would have taken if you have taken the bolus on time there's a chance you may go low since it may take a different amount of insulin to lower your BG then it would have to bolus for the carbs. Insulin (avg): 19.8 U (35% bolus); CHO (avg): 87g; BG (avg): 97 mg/dl; SD: 31 Tests (avg): 5.1; High: 168; Low: 51; highs>140: 3; lows<70: 10 D.D. Family T1 since 1982, pumping with Animas on 10/20/08 I've done it before, depending on what my pre meal bg was I adjust and then I ensure to test frequently to ensure that it is working on bringing the sugar down but not causing a low. Also to ensure that I gave myself enough and I'm not super high. It's kinda like Regardless of our situa Continue reading >>
