    I’m a plonker and I forgot to take my basal last night and didn’t realise until I woke up this morning.

    I usually take 24 units of abasaglar before sleeping but didn’t last night.

    Any advice? :)

    In your position I just take extra bolus all day, playing catch up. Not great but it (sort of) works.

    Keep testing.
