Yes. It actually is a very effective way to kill yourself. Your brain must have glucose in order to function. With a lot of insulin, all of the glucose would be stored away in cells. At minimum it would put you in a coma.

There are cases where people have used insulin as a method to commit murder. Interestingly it can be tracked by lab studies. The insulin you produce yourself is different than that that is administered exogenously. The amount that it would take to kill an average person would be very different than that who is diabetic. Some diabetics administer over 100 U of insulin to themselves everyday. That would most certainly be a fatal dose in a non-diabetic person. I don't know if the minimum "fatal" dose is really known as it is not something studied.

Being injected with too much insulin can cause blood sugars to drop drastically, and cause a coma--and then death.

It's a bad method. You don't simply go to sleep.You will feel terror .

Absolutely! Insulin can be a very dangerous drug-if a person has too much insulin they will become weak, lethargic, sweaty, confused, sleepy, etc..and if a person is not treated for hypoglycemia and the blood sugar continues to fall--it can lead to seizures, unconsciousness, coma and death. An untreated episode of hypoglycemia and/or a person who is unconscious from hypoglycemia is a medical emergency and requires immediate intervention.

Yes. They may die or have irreversible brain damage even with small amounts.

If you are planning to kill yourself, seek help now. If you were to do this, there is a chance you will suffer severe brain damage and yet not die, becoming a vegetable (i.e. persistant vegetative state) for the rest of your days. It would also be a terrifying way to go, as you wait for it all to kick in and slowly lose control.

If you are thinking of harming someone else, know that lethal doses of insulin can be detected. They will check the person's c-peptide level, which indicates natural insulin levels in the body. If they have low blood sugar and more insulin than c-peptide, they know it was injected.

Insulin is NOT something to be played with. If you are asking for reasons beyond curiousity, please talk to someone about it who can help you.
