I’ve been diabetic for about 8 months now and this has happened to me a couple of times.
A few times I’ve been eating dinner, after 2 units of insulin (for instance), and halfway through my meal, I realize that maybe I should have taken one more because I’ve done my carb math wrong. And it’s usually in a situation like “oh eff, my mom just got home from the holiday cookie exchange at work…damn!” or “WOW that def had potatoes in it. I’m totally gonna be high later,” or “that BBQ sauce tastes way too sweet…”
So…let’s say I take pre-meal (Humalog) of 2 or 3 units, and surprise, the dessert fairy arrives (or some other event that’s related to this delicious magnitude), can I take another unit while I’m still eating? Or shortly after?
Hermm…any advice is greatly appreciated.
