Dear Brudy Carlo
If using insulin makes you nauseous, then it is vital that you consult the dr who prescribed your insulin and tell him/her about this side-effect. Go for a checkup immediately because the dr may need to adjust your dose or change the type of insulin you are using. I trust that you are also under the guidance of a clinical dietitian because the correct diet is one of the most important aspects of diabetic treatment? If not, then Please consult a dietitian as soon as possible (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area).
