    i am a bit worried and feel a bit silly to phone any one not that i know who i would phone but i took the lantus injection before my evening meal by mistake and im not sure what to do

    Hi Leanne, :( sorry it's a bit late but if you ever need advice urgently, and your worried then you should ring NHS direct, so they can help, I feel awful that I missed your post and you were left worrying as I remember how I felt when first diagnosed and things went wrong, like when I went through a big vein, all the blood scared me as I didn't know if I'd injected into the vein or just went through it . Anyway I hope you stick around, and ask anything you need to know, if people know the answers, and can help they will, all the best :D

    I'm sorry I missed that one too, Leanne.
    I hope you're ok. Please keep in touch and we'll do better next time!

    All the best,

    fergus
