I'm a type 1 diabetic. I don't always carry my insulin with me when I'm going to make a short trip to the store.
The other day, I was out longer than I wanted to be, got stuck in the store, and was feeling a little woozy.(figured it was a low blood sugar attack) I decided on my way home to stop at a local fast food restaurant and grab something to eat.
When I got home I did my Blood sugars, it was 233. I had no meds or did I take my Insulin before doing this test.
So, I then proceeded to give my self my Insulin shot (regular dose), and take my other meds (blood pressure,etc.)
I went about my regular daily routine when about 1 1/2 hours later I began to have the shakes, which for me was low blood sugar. So, again I did my Blood sugar, and now it was 68.
Was I right in taking my Insulin, or should I've waited till my next meal.
