I just need a little advice regarding injection time and food consumption.
While preparing a meal I have caught myself a number of times taking a bite of food, and then remembering that I hadn't taken my pre-meal Byetta dose. I have been so programmed NOT to inject after eating that I don't take the medicine. So I'm wondering if I'm being a little crazy here, and that it would be ok to inject the Byetta after eating a single bite of food.
Also, there are times when I'm going out to dinner, and I'm not sure if I'm going to get to the restaurant and start eating within an hour. In these cases I inject the Byetta, them eat a cracker or two before leaving for the restaurant. Is this ok to do or is "injecting--eating a little bit--followed by a full meal a little more than an hour later" not a good way to use Byetta?
