09 Dec 2008 - Wrong Insulin Given

Wrong Insulin given


If you gave rapid acting insulin instead of long acting, DO NOT PANIC, you will need to feed the insulin.  You will need to follow the guidelines for treating a severe low and will need to continue to check blood sugars for about 3 to 4 hours until the insulin is gone from the system.  Since this insulin typically peaks about 1 to 1 hours after it is given, make sure to have enough carbohydrates on board to cover that peak and check closely every 20 - 30 minutes until the insulin is gone.  You can calculate approximately how many carbohydrates will be needed based on the I:C ratio for that time period for your child.
