Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

It will be far preferable for Linus to experience high blood sugar rather than risk hypoglycemia. So, if you're not certain if you gave him his insulin tonight or not, then don't give him more. Restart his regular schedule tomorrow.

He'll be fine for the few hours that his blood sugar will be higher than it normally would be.

I hope this helps, Deb
