The most common side effect of insulin glulisine is low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia. Take precautions, such as carry glucose tablets with you, to counteract this condition before using insulin glulisine. Learn to recognize the symptoms of hypoglycemia, which include nausea, headache, hunger, drowsiness or confusion, weakness, dizziness, fast heartbeat or sweating, tremors, difficulty concentrating, or seizures.
