    Evening all,

    Levemir is normally taken by daughter at 8pm, is there a safe window to postpone it to? Say 9:30?
    Have read all the info that came with Levemir and can't find the answer..
    Many thanks

    There shouldn't be any problem with only an hour and a half delay. It's possible that you may see a slight rise in BGL as a result of the 90 minute delay but I'd be surprised if it was significant in any way.

    That's great thanks @GrantHam1337, she's on a residential trip - I might just sleep a bit better now.

    No worries. I find Levemir to be pretty good and have taken it 4 hours either side of my normal time due to heading out, etc and it's never caused me any problems.

    I tend to take it at the same time religiously, but it's nice to know it's fairly flexible.
