My husband accidently give himself the wrong insulin. He should have given himself 46 units of Tresiba, but he gave himself 46 units of Humalog.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Right now nothing.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He already had shortness of breath. About 1 1/2 year ago he had a quadruple bypass.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
