I am having a CT scan on Thu 28th at 09:00, which means restricted diet before the scan. I can have clear fluids (apple juice, water) or black tea in the four hours before the scan.

I take Novarapid (QA) before meals and Levemir (BI) am and pm.

As I won't be eating much, I will probably miss the morning QA and take half my BI at breakfast time. After the scan, I'll take the other half of the BI, along with QA and a snack, based on BG. This is based on instructions for another type of scan with more restrictions.

Has anybody any experience of CT scan and how did you manage your insulin?
