Is It Safe To Take My Levemir At Night If My Sugar Is Low Before I Take It?

Is It Safe To Take My Levemir At Night If My Sugar Is Low Before I Take It?

Since Friday I've been on a very strict diabetic diet, following everything dr said to do as my Fasting sugar A1C was 321. Since I've been very strict my sugars are down in the 100's but I had one before supper tonight at 88. That was before my Novolog injection before supper. Two hours after eating it was 125. Great numbers for me but now I'm afraid if I take my slow acting Levemir tonight (80 units) it'll drop too low and I won't know it. any suggestions?

Levemir is slow acting. Doesn't kick in till 4 hours after injection. works all night. I take 32 units and I have taken it when blood sugar was 125. I looked it up on Google. It's suppose to stabilize blood sugars throughout the night.

Ask your doc, I used 2 few yrs ago use exact like u, but 125 is good before bedtime but I'll not intake 88 units... I don't see the reason my glucose will drop so low that I may go into coma... 🤔😉🎸
