When I was on injections, before the pump:
I was wondering do you eat you meals at the same time everyday?
A. Yes, because I would have a reaction if I delayed the meal.
or do you eat when your blood sugar is at a certain level?
A. I always took a snack if my BG was low.
Is there ever a level where your blood sugars at that you feel is too low to take your insulin when it's time to eat? if this does happen do you eat first then take it instead of the usual before then eat?
A. There were times when I ate for a few minutes and then took the insulin. However, I tried to be careful to account for the low bg and not overdose.
Sorry for all the questions. I just picked up my insulin an hour ago and I don't know if I should start it today or wait until tomorrow..
A. If it were me, and I can't answer for you, I would take the insulin as prescribed, checking bg every 2 to 3 hours for the first 24 hours. Perhaps set the alarm every 3 hours the first night, if possible. Do you live with someone who can check on you during the night? On the other hand, there should be no harm in waiting until the morning, unless your bg is high and needs the insulin to bring it down. These are just my opinions and I am NOT a model diabetic.
