Hypoglycemia

Question from :

If a person is not ill and ate something without covering it with short-acting insulin, then they vomit, could it cause their blood sugar to drop?

Answer:

In the event that you vomit shortly after you eat and have not taken a shot of your short-acting insulin (Regular, Humalog, or Novolog), you could experience a drop in your blood sugars.
