Hi, welcome to HCM. It is not at all medically advisable to skip doses of insulin or infact tinker with the dosage without physician's advise. Skipping a dose may lead to dangerously elevated blood sugar level in your body which may lead to medical emergencies. Blood sugar levels are controlled by interplay of different factors in the body and even even excessive stress or work pressure may shoot up your blood sugar levels which will be further accentuated if you skip your dose of insulin. If you have difficulty in taking regular insulin injections and your sugar levels are well controlled over a period of time, then ask your doctor regarding possibility of shifting you to oral drugs
Sticking to the regimen is the best way to keep the blood glucose under control. Do not attempt to skip the insulin. The insulin should be taken according to the timing and dose exactly mentioned. The blood sugar of 150 is not ok if u are saying aboiut fasting levels. Your doctor is right by saying so.

Hello Doctor, I m 30 weeks pregnant and have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes since last week and been on the insulin injection. After the first day of insulin my blood sugar level had returned to normal. Now at home i only give myself the shots before lunch and dinner and I skipped the before breakfast shot and I checked my blood sugar level before that and it showed normal range. So is it okay to skip on my insulin shots before breakfast completely?

My father s pancreas has shut down, and he was told that especially with his diabetes, that his kidneys are soon to follow. I was looking online the other day and found some sort of implant that can be put in now, that has helped 50% of those who tried it, from developing full kidney failure, but now I can not find the name of the implant so that we can talk to his doctor about it. Can anyone tell me the name of this? It was like 3 or 4 letters long...
