I called my health plans health advice nurse I then explained I forgot to take my 10 Units of Novolin Insulin last night. I only use 1X at night. I asked her how many hours after the regular time for injecting the insulin can I still inject it. She read to me from their guidelines:"Up to four hours after the normal dosing time, you can still inject the normal dose (my case 10 Units) She then went on and read "If you are half way in between your normal dosing time, you can inject half the dose, (my case 5 Units) then return to normal dose (me 10 units) amount that night. I was happy to hear I had guessed correctly previously during my 1st month. Today I was calling around the half way point today. I hadn't even thought of injecting half the dose. Happy I called. My fasting was a wee higher than it had been brought down to w/in normal range.
