Well, with your certainty that quite a bit was NOT injected I really think you are in good shape. In fact, I see no reason to do anything else.
I would onl keep a close eye
on Mongo over the next 12 hours, the typical duration of insulin shots.
Worst case? Well, our concern would be the insulin dropping the blood sugar too far. In that case, you could still offset any complication from too much insulin by giving an extra meal or a little sugar in the form of pancake syrup or karo syrup in maybe 4-6 hours.
Symptoms of hypoglycemia
- drunk like walking
- tremors or even a seizure event.
I would not expect these complications if the amount "total" given is close to 9 units or even 10 units. At 12-13 units, giving a little extra food or a teaspoon of pancake syrup in 2-3 hours may be a good idea.
I hope that information has been helpful.
