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


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!

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.
