HELP!! DH gave son 26 units instead of 2.6
Please help -- anyone. My son was over 400 for awhile due to an unbolused dinner with my parents tonight (had some lows and pump wouldn't take it). My DH tested ketones (0.0) and changed site. Gave a shot to cover the high and misread the syringe (!!!!!) and gave him 26 units Novolog instead of 2.6. Only realized this about 30 mins ago after giving a number of juice boxes. Called the after hours line and they said give glucagon via syringe and see what happens. He's back up to 125 just now 15 mins later. But 26 UNITS -- am totally scared. What would you do?? Go directly to hospital? I want to but nurse on call said wait.

Allergic reactions to Novolog and Apidra. Keeping fingers crossed that Humalog will be fine.
