When I was on insulin I had to wait 15 minutes before eating. It helped me while on it but now off insulin totally for the last 10 months

I am on 3 types of insulin. One I take before going to bed, the other 2 I take before meals. The instructions say to take 10 to 15 minutes before eating, but if I forget or get the timing wrong, I am still supposed to take it even if I have started eating.

All 3 are injections. Not oral so they never "hit the toungue"......

read the pamphlet that came with your type of insulin. Some start when you start eating.

Agree . . . not aware of ANY type of insulin given orally. Would that it could be! Send some more specifics (like the name of the drug you're on) or drugs -- and we can help you.

when does insulin kick in, when it hits the tounge or when the food is digested?
