Missed a mealtime dose?
If you missed a mealtime dose of rapid-acting insulin and realized it within the hour, take your normal dose. If it’s within 2 hours later, take 75 percent of your normal dose, and if it’s 3 hours later, take half of your normal dose. If you use a personalized sliding scale, you can recheck your glucose and use a correction factor instead.
Warning: Please work with your healthcare provider. Although the following suggestions may be common approaches to insulin dose adjustment, you want to be sure you are safe and under the guidance of a professional before changing your insulin regimen. It takes time to understand these steps and to see how your body responds.
