If Humalog Mix25/Humalog Mix50 is taken more than necessary, a low blood sugar may occur. Check the blood sugar.
If the blood sugar is low (mild hypoglycaemia), eat glucose tablets, sugar or drink a sugary drink. Then eat fruit, biscuits, or a sandwich, as the doctor's advice and have some rest. This will often get the patient over mild hypoglycaemia or a minor insulin overdose. If the patient gets worse and the breathing is shallow and the skin gets pale, tell the doctor immediately. A glucagon injection can treat quite severe hypoglycaemia. Eat glucose or sugar after the glucagon injection. If glucagon has no effect, the patient will have to go to a hospital.
