Welcome to the forum @Kim H

Glad you have found us!

Are there any aspects of your diabetes management that you are finding particularly challenging at the moment?

What insulins, pens, pumps, gadgets and gizmos do you currently use? Have you ever done DAFNE or a similar education course?

Fire away with any questions you may have, we are all continually learning, and there are no ‘perfect‘ PWD here. No questions will be thought of as too obvious or ‘silly’. :)

Does anyone know what would happen if you miss insulin injection and blood sugar to rise?

Hi @Kim H assuming that you are on Multiple Daily Injections (MDI), if you miss an injection having eaten some carbs your BG will rise as those carbs are converted into glucose. The basal insulin will deal with the glucose that your liver will dribble out to upkeep you ticking over.

Have you been taught how to correct your levels if they do rise. If you have not had the chance to do an education course about adjusting your doses it would be worth asking to be referred to one. The nature of the course depends on where you live. The one I followed was Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating (DAFNE). It was offered soon after my diagnosis and I found it invaluable.
