We took Chris on a long road trip in 2008 and in his case we mixed up his special concoction of canned food and cottage cheese at the side of the road and filled his insulin based on a blood sugar test. He was really mellow that way so it worked fine for us.

We wrote a blog post a while back about how we accomplished our trip:

But you can absolutely prefill a syringe. You just have to remix the insulin inside the syringe before injecting it.

Probably makes sense to bring some alternative food sources just to help relieve your stress.

And if you prefill syringes, you might fill one for "refuses to eat" and one for eating a decent meal.
