Missed insulin shot
jmmbohio posted:
Due to illness last night my husband missed his nightly insulin shot. should he just take it this morning along with the metforman?

Either/or situation. I take my insulin in the morning (Lantus.) He will just have to take it each morning rather than at bedtime.

I've missed my daily shot once. I didn't take it. Just waited for the next morning.

It's up to him. If it makes him feel better, call the doctor. I realize this is the weekend and he may not get an answer.

IMO, it's not a big deal. My blood glucose remained steady because of my job which is physical.
