    I am really worried because my mom just gave me my lantice and when she was taking the needle off she poked herself!! I am worried that she got lantice in her, and is going to get a low blood sugar?? She is a non-diabetic, can that happen?? Am I worrying about nothing?! Please Help!!!!!!!!!! Megan

    You are worrying about nothing - she will be just fine! Her pancreas will regulate her Blood Sugar, even if she got a couple of units - which I am sure she didn't do.

    I jabbed myself pretty hard after filling a pod once. Aside from my finger hurting like you know what, didn't have any problems. There's so little left on needle I doubt it's a problem at all.

    She'll be fine. I've poked myself several times with CJ's used needles.

    As long as she didn't inject a huge amount she will be fine, especially given that it was Lantus. If a non-diabetic takes insulin they will have a low blood sugar, just like people with diabetes. But it would have to be a significant amount.

    The risk of lows from Lantus is low as long as it is a small amount - usually the body will just adjust for it. This is for long-acting insulin, though.

    I would assume she didn't get much, if any injected into her right? As long as she didn't get a huge dose she'll be fine.

    Make sure she did treat the injected area with alcohol though.
