No they wouldn't get high, they'd just have low blood-sugar for a while, or if they OD, they'd die.

You could possibly extend the brain damage already experienced by someone stupid enough to do such a thing.

Insulin causes hypoglycemia in a non diabetic or in a diabetic that takes too much insulin. There are no pleasant effects. Mild hypoglycemia causes a headache, blurry vision and fatigue. More severe hypoglycemia causes a person to lapse into a coma. Even a small dose of insulin can cause a coma. If person remains in a coma for more than a few minutes, irreversible brain damage begins to occur.

Hey dummy this is what would happen. The sugar in your blood is like the gas for your car. The sugar in your blood is your bodys gas. Insulin will take the sugar in your blood and convert it into fat. It's like taking all the gas out of your car and putting it in a jug to save for later. The saved jug of gas is the fat. It you take all the gas out of your car and save it for later your car won't have any gas to run on. It will die. You will die kid.. Diabetics can't turn the sugar in there blood into fat without it. Give me props thats the best answer huh.


What is Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body convert food into energy. Without insulin, glucose (sugar) from the food you eat cannot enter cells. So glucose builds up in the blood. Your body tissue becomes starved for energy.

Type 1 diabetes usually begins in children and young adults. Over the long-term, if type 1 diabetes is not adequately treated, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels, heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves, and other tissues or organs.
