In brief: Yes

The main side effect of all Insulin is hypoglycemia; therefore, the most important thing is to be sure to always be prepared to treat hypoglycemia by carrying a rapid-acting carbohydrate, such as glucose tablets, with you.
Novolog starts working in 15 minutes and peaks in approximately 2 hours so watch for hypoglycemia soon after an infection and you typically want to eat when you take it.

In brief: Yes

Rapid acting Insulin can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) if the patient doesn't eat right after taking it.
