In brief: Just do it

Don't make a production out of it.
Prepare your pen or syringe. Discreetly lift your shirt a little, or your skirt or dress if injecting in thigh, and just do it. Your table should cover most of what you are doing.

In brief: It depends

It all depens (penicillamine) on the carbohydrate countimg and the food serving.
Everyone also responds differently to the amount of Insulin they are injectiong. The Insulin dose varies according to serving size , carb amount and te overall weight of the patient.
