Default Forgot to take Levemir

Ooops! My father forgot to take his Levemir today after eating dinner.

He usually takes 15 units at 6pm, after eating dinner.

He had a small snack of sugar free ice cream at 8pm.

Now at Midnight, six hours after eating, we realize we forgot to give the shot of Levemir. We just took his blood sugar and it is 139.

Is 139 acceptable? What should I do?

I think you should take the regular dose now and then tomorrow contact your doctor and discuss how much that should be taken then - most probably you should take less tomorrow since it'll be fewer hours than normal between doses.
