Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question. I'm going to say that in situations like this, it is way more safe to "assume" she got the dose and not give her any more here tonight. Worst case scenario if she didn't get that dose and she misses it here tonight is that her glucose levels are high for 12 hours. This is way more safe than "assuming" she didn't get it when she did and then giving her more on top of that. This is when hypoglycemia can happen and this is way more of an emergency than being high. If you think back to when she was first diagnosed, she was high for many, many days - most diabetics are high for weeks to months before they are diagnosed. So if she is high for 12 hours, this isn't that bad.
