The recommendation is to inject Novolog 20 minutes before meal time.
What are some of the options if:
a. you eat more than you planned because you are more hungry
b. somewhere between 3 and 4 hours since the last bolus injection, you decide to eat a medium sized banana, (27g carb,according to calorieking.com)
I just began using insulin and was told that 1 unit of insulin/15g carb.
a. inject more insulin to cover the extra food?
b. inject 1 1/2 units to cover the 27 g carb for the banana?
What are some of the "problems" or trouble that I can get into because while bolus insulin peaks 60-90 minutes from time of injection, it's still in the body up to about 4 hours, right?
