What if I get insulin into a vein?

I'd assume the same would kind of happen with a long acting in that it would be in and out faster so one would go low after the dose and then high once it runs out (or to normal if the low isn't corrected).

Diabetes is an Art, NOT a Science. You must master the control by skills and not by knowledge alone.

- You could get sick
- Some bleeding
- Quick rush and huge crash
thats why you always go for fat, and while you never want to inject in a vein, if you shoot into fleshy areas like your upper thigh, butt, upper arm, tummy, the chance of you hitting a vein are microcosmic.

Usually its not a big deal, as long as there is not much bleeding.

I'm sure it wouldn't be nearly as bad if it was a fast-acting insulin, and it also may have been worse for me b/c I was young and therefore quite small.

Anywhere you go
let me go to . . .
that's all I ask of . . .

I can be thankful it was my long acting not fast acting, because I was alone and never would have managed to get my BG up again if it was THAT fast.
It was before breakfast, and I'd taken my long acting, then sat down to a cuppa while reading emails etc. It was about 20 minutes before I crashed, but then I spent about an hour drinking coke, eating a banana and chocolate (for breakfast! Gawd it was horrible!) and feeling SO weird. I stayed on the low end for a good couple of hours, then I was fine for the rest of the day. Thankfully I wasn't miles high afterwards!
It made me thankful that my normal lows are so calm and gentle (in comparison). I never want to fall so fast again... but on the other hand, it also proved to me that I'm quite capable of fixing up stuff-ups, and I survived to tell the story... so in some ways it made me stronger and took away my fear of lows
