I understand your concern.

Levemir is a long acting insulin which acts slowly over a period of 18 to 24 hours.

You should monitor your blood sugar levels.

And it doesn't cause you harm if you had taken Levemir 2 units.

If your blood sugar levels will be high after meals then take Novolog injection.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

I'm Dr Chaithanya, a diabetologist here

You can take Levemir 2 units after a gap of 1 hour even though you have taken nolog, that should be the right thing

Hope this is clear
