How much insulin can kill you if you are non diabetic? Would it be painful to die from an insulin overdose?
Im just wondering how much insulin would it require to kill you. I don't know much about it although my cousin is a diabetic. I am not a diabetic. How much insulin would it take? Would it be painful or would it just knock you out and you die.

Eeee.. sounds like you want to kill yourself D:

insulin is not a recreational drug.

Someone would not ask this question, unless they were thinking of doing it. Please get some help from suicide hotline if you are considering it. Taking insulin when you don't need it is dangerous my friend!!

I am diabetic. It would be very uncomfortable to die that way.
Now having said that, I am wondering why you would be pondering such a fate?
Do you not realize that you are not in charge and therefore you don't get to just decide to die? Think about it. When did you decide to be born? Human beings often think all they have to do is commit suicide and all problems cease to be. BUT how would you know? Isn't it possible that what ever problems you tried to escape, could go with you into another realm? I say it is; because we don't get to cheat life. Some one is in charge of the whole system of life and you can't just break the code and expect the authority over life to go "Whoa you slipped that one by me. I didn't see what you were up to, silly me"

I suggest you take this very seriously because one thing more: death is permanent and problems have resolve if you are willing to do what you must to turn things around. Even if you're a kid with limits there are agencies that will help you if you make the right calls and you need help. Life is a lot happier when you decide to accept the challenges instead of focusing on accepting what you perceive to be the failures.
I know because I used to think of suicide as a solution too and in fact had several failed attempts. When I finally looked for a solution in healthy ways, I found solution and I started to heal.
So my friend, get some help. Include spirituality in your life and you will find your answers. I hope this has been helpful.

idk... depends on how your body works... no it would not be painful at all. its really uncomfortable though, because youd go hypoglycemic, which makes you tired and gives you headaches and makes you shake and it is ANNOYING.

you cant actually die from an insulin overdose because your body has a backup supply of sugar, so youd just pass out and then wake up a bit later. but then youd wake up with a HUGE headache, and apparently it feels like u have a hangover...


I don't know how much, it depends on the person, a full insulin syringe would most likely kill someone... And it would be incredibly uncomfrotable and slow, you get shaky and start not being able to hold yourself up and you would feel imcredibly hungry, then your brain would start to function less and less, and you would get irrtable, then pass out, then die.

I have heard of people overdosing on insulin and dying. But from personal experience, I find it unlikely. Although, everyone reacts very differently to hypoglycemia. I seem to become very rational, but some people are just the total opposite...

The lowest Blood glucose reading I ever had was 23. And they say you are supposed to be passed out, and I almost did. I was very close. But your body also produces a huge amount of adrenaline in that situation and it feels like your heart is going to pop out of your chest. Your body continues to produce as much glycogen as possible to maintain blood sugars up...You also get extremely hungry like you have never been before.

How much depends on the person. But I bet starting at 15-100 units will kill most normal people...

This is a rather odd question to ask...If you are thinking about using this information for any wrong doing, I suggest you talk to someone


Just go buy yourself an Ice Cream sunday while you still can AND be happy :)

As far as dying, it would depend upon the amount & type of insulin. There are some slow-acting insulins that work over a 24-hour period. Then there are fast-acting insulins, some faster than others. Also, it would depend on how much of the insulin was injected.

I gave you that information, but I wouldn't tell you what would be a dangerous level. There is always the risk of someone else reading this. I wouldn't want to risk putting anyone in danger.

If someone thought that injecting insulin would be an easy way to die, they would be wrong. It doesn't just make you sleepy & knock you out & then kill you. You would have severe symptoms, starting with the shakes & then nausea & vomiting. Gradually, you would begin to have seizures & have chest pain. Eventually, you would go into a coma; but there is no guarantee that you would die. You could be left seriously brain damaged or suffer heart problems. You could end up in a coma or a vegetative state which means you can hear what's going on but can't move or speak. That would be a fate worse than death.
