What questions would you ask to find out what precipitated this event? When was the last time you ate or drank anything? What was it? When was the last time you administered your insulin? Did you administer too much? Did you exercise after taking insulin? How often do you check you blood glucose? 9. What further action do you need to take at this time?

The apple did not have enough nutrients to be able to converted to maintain glycemic control. Too much insulin was administered for the food provided. 14.
