This sounds (literally) like a life or death question. You may want to contact a medical professional about this.

Answer

Hmm... that's touchy. Honestly, depending on just how bad this man's health is unless he is within finger's reach of sufficient insulin, plenty of food, and most importantly a hospital he'd die pretty quick. Probably a heartstorm or spontaneous kidney failure (even if he undergoes regular dialysis) not to mention his eye sight might disappear within so many minutes just before unconciousness.

If you're thinking about trying this as a prank DON'T DO IT!! Regardless of the legal definition, morally if you do this knowing his vulnerabilities it's kind of like comitting first degree murder especially if he's a type 1 (insulin dependant) diabetic.

Is this some kind of sick joke question? I'm a type 1 diabetic and this sounds like attempted murder or a suicide attempt? defintely NOT ok!

A diabetic has either impaired and/or non-functioning pancreas which produces insulin. If insulin is not injected, the sugars from carbs build up in blood which results in high blood sugar.

In 1916 Nicolae Paulescu, a Romanian professor of physiology at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, developed an aqueous pancreatic extract which, when injected into a diabetic dog, proved to have a normalizing effect on blood sugar levels. He had to interrupt his experiments because the World War I and in 1921 he wrote four papers about his work carried out in Bucharest and his tests on a diabetic dog. Later that year, he detailed his work by publishing an extensive whitepaper on the effect of the pancreatic extract injected into a diabetic animal, which he called: "Research on the Role of the Pancreas in Food Assimilation".

Instead of Insulin,if air is injected into abdomen/subcutaneous,then the patient's blood sugar level will go up (Hyperglycemia) which may lead to Diabetic Keto Acidosis(DKA).To take control over the situation, insulin(Rapid acting) has to be injected immediately.

carbohydrates are important because : people could be diabetic type 1 or 2 and that means type 2 diabetes is where they need to watch there wait and type 1 is where they have to be injected so they are healthy for both type's.

As a type 1 diabetic and nurse, I can tell you it can kill you, but only because it drops your blood sugar very quickly. At some hospitals, nurses will actually inject insulin into a patients iv line in order to get bg down fast. If you think you have injected into a vein, check glucose levels every few minutes, and go ahead and treat for a low.
