When to take insulin

My neighbor is a T2D and I have been a type 1 for 42 years. She takes her insulin After meals. I have never heard of this! Are there T2s that have been told to take insulin After meals????

  1. , Thats a good question. When you take your insulin depends on what kind of insulin you are using: https://type2diabetes.com/living/understanding-insulin. For short-acting insulin, it is recommended to take about 30 minutes before meals.
