'I have to be home at 10.00 for my insulin' does this mean they are diabetic type 1? Or could they be referring to a suppliment or something? Just my new mate said it but I didn't ask, hes a jogger and footballer and obssesed with keeping fit and diet etc so I thought maybe its something he takes but doesn't need to lol.
Yeah, he must have diabetes.
yeah i thought if you took insulin if you didnt need it it really wouldnt be good for you at all..
ah ok, don't people with non diabetic hypoglycimia take it.
maybe they'd take it for hyperglycaemia. (not hypo) But I doubt it.
My dogs diabetic, and we have to give her insulin at a certain time each day, so I would guess he was diabetic.
Either diabetic or just tired of your company.
Hopefully diabetic though.
He must be newly diagnosed or just fussy! My "10:00" means somewhere around that - its probably a longterm, slowacting one for the next day if its at 10 because if he wasn't going to eat again, he won't need insulin and 10 seems late to be giving the fast acting one. If it is that one then he could bring it with him anyway. Mine spends more time in my bag than anywhere else!
I'm diabetic and if I give the 'fast' insulin that late, even if I eat, then I get hypo during the night and have to get up and eat again.
one shot with each meal and one at night is called a basil bolus routine. also if he has to take insulin injections he will probably be type 1 because type 2 is generally controllable with just tablets or even diet besides if he is athletic it is unlikely he is type 2
why not just bring the injection out with him, i knew people who do that
