    I use the 10cc vial of Humalog and according to directions once you start using it (puncture the vial) it's good for only 28 days even if refrigerated. A 10 cc vial lasts me well more than a month and I don't have insurance and hate to waste half a vial every month. How long, if any, is the grace period for Humalog after the vial is punctured? How strict is that 28 day expiration?

  2. diabeticpumper

    Well, with any medication as it reaches the expiration date, the drug effectivness begins to weaken and will eventually have no effect.
    As for a grace period, not sure I can safely say a particular amount of time, but I have been known to use a vial up to a month beyond the posted date without any severe changes in my numbers. It will have to be something you must watch closely with your numbers and judge from that, should you decide to use beyond the exp. date.

  3. SamQKitty

    I agree. Those expiration dates are very narrow, mainly to protect the manufacturer if the insulin does go bad. They determine through tests and experimentation what is the longest time they can safely say, with complete confidence, that the insulin will last...but often it will frequently last quite a bit longer.
    Humalog is a clear insulin, so there are some things you can look for to determine that it's gone bad: cloudiness (in the insulin...make sure it's not just condensation on the outside of the bottle!), particles floating in it...either of those two things would indicate that it has definitely gone bad. However, even before either of those happen, it can lose its potency. So, as diabetic pumper suggested, watch your numbers carefully and test often...if you see the numbers creeping up steadily with no other explanation, then you need to change the insulin.

How to use KWIKPEN video. Kwikpen is used for injecting following insulins: Humalog; Humalog Mix 25 (25% short acting insulin analogue HUMALOG and 75% long acing HUMULIN I) and Humaolg Mix 50 (50% short acting insulin analogue HUMALOG and 50% long acing HUMULIN I). This is a disposable ( single use) pen. Both HUMALOG and HUMULIN I are for used in pregnancy and gestational diabetes.

Humalog 50-50

HUMALOG® Mix50/50™ 50% Insulin Lispro Protamine Suspension and 50% Insulin Lispro Injection (Rdna Origin) 100 Units Per Ml (U-100) DESCRIPTION Humalog® Mix50/50™ [50% insulin lispro protamine suspension and 50% insulin lispro injection, (rDNA origin)] is a mixture of insulin lispro solution, a rapid-acting blood glucose-lowering agent and insulin lispro protamine suspension, an intermediate-acting blood glucose-lowering agent. Chemically, insulin lispro is Lys(B28), Pro(B29) human insulin analog, created when the amino acids at positions 28 and 29 on the insulin B-chain are reversed. Insulin lispro is synthesized in a special non-pathogenic laboratory strain of Escherichia coli bacteria that has been genetically altered to produce insulin lispro. Insulin lispro protamine suspension (NPL component) is a suspension of crystals produced from combining insulin lispro and protamine sulfate under appropriate conditions for crystal formation. Insulin lispro has the following primary structure: Insulin lispro has the empirical formula C257H383N65O77S6 and a molecular weight of 5808, both identical to that of human insulin. Humalog Mix50/50 vials and Pens contain a sterile suspension Continue reading >>

    Hi. How Long does Lantus remain good for in the fridge? My vet said 6 months. Is that too long? Thanks.

  2. Lisa and Merlyn (GA)

    It can be good for 6mos, if you dont shake it and handle it carefully. Its good until there are "floaties" in it, particulate matter. Merlyn used one vial for 7 months and then went OTJ. 3 months later after being unused in the fridge it finally had floaties in it.

  3. Lisa and Witn (GA)

    For cats, it can be used for months. Human use is only 28 days. If you are hometesting you will be able to determine when it is beginning to lose its effectiveness.

Insulin Pens Are Welcome Back To The Fridge!

We all know that unopened insulin must be kept in the refrigerator. But once in use can we put it back in the fridge to protect it from excessive heat? The answer to this simple question is not as easy as one might think. All manufacturers explicitly recommend to ‘Not refrigerate’ insulin pens in use. This guideline that causes confusion among users is now being revoked by one manufacturer. Let’s try to understand the reasoning behind it and what it means for users now. What? I shouldn’t put my insulin pen back in the refrigerator? When it comes to storing medications, it is recommended you follow the leaflet or packaging instructions. For insulin in particular, there are two different situations: storing and in-use. · Before Opening: When insulin is to be stored long-term and has not been opened, keeping it in the fridge ensures it lasts until expiration date. · During Use: Once a vial, a cartridge or a new disposable pen are used for the first time, the insulin can be kept at room temperature. But it needs to be used within weeks. It makes sense: higher temperatures and an open product mean a shorter shelf life. But there is one extra sentence on insulin pens packages, Continue reading >>

    Does anyone use the Frio wallets? Do you recommend them.
    I started using insulin in November and have yet to encounter hot weather, but it is coming very soon. Where I live high 90's and triple digits are common. I am mostly homebound but we are planning some long day trips coming up. I am looking at two things. One, keeping my current opened Humalog and Lantus vials cool and it seems like the Frio will do this. Secondly because I worry that something could bappen while we are several hours away from home that would delay our return, I would like to carry an un-opened vial of each in case. If not opened but kept at room temperature will it now have the "good for 28 days" clock start ticking? Is there a better way to carry those?
    I would love to hear what others do to keep their insulin cool on the go.
    ​Thank you!

    I wouldn't worry about keeping a single pen of each type in a Frio pack for a day. The only significant factor I would be concerned about is that because the pack cools by evaporation, it is important to keep it in a place where air can circulate freely, not tucked away snugly in a purse or backpack, and not in directed sunlight all the time.
    I am a little less confident about how to carry a second pen. Usually, if you are traveling by car or plane, and carrying insulin you want to use for several days away from home, you can use a lunchbox, with ice or a reusuable icepack to keep the box cool, but wrapping the insulin pen or vial in something like a washcloth or towel to protect it from getting TOO cold and freezing. You can replace the ice as needed while you are traveling, with ice from flight attendants, a hotel, or even when eating at a restaurant.
    It gets a little more "iffy" keeping insulin in a Frio type pack. One thing to consider is how long it takes you to use each pen. If you are quite insulin resistant and normally use up an entire pen in, say, three days, and you really do use your spare pen next, so that it is reasonably cool for two to six days, you are probably fine with the Frio. If you normally use only ten units a day, so that the spare pen might go unrefrigerated for nearly a month, I would suggest using the lunch box method instead for your spare pens.
    The problem with insulin when it doesn't stay cool is that it gradually loses its effectiveness. It can still be used, but you may need a little more of it to get the effect you need. If I brought a pen home from a trip unused, I would want to be VERY careful to make sure I did begin using it regularly as soon as I needed a new pen. and watch for any loss of strenght as the days went by. I wouldn't just keep it separate to be used once again as a spare.
    When I bring new insulin home from the pharmacy, the expiration date is usually about two years in the future. Under the right conditions, it does last a long time. There are no guidlines, no clear-cut rules once we start to take liberties with those rules, and nobody wants to make any promises for those inbetween conditions. What we do know, is the longer it stays warm, and the warmer it gets, the sooner it will start to lose its strength. That's where we need to use a little common sense.

    Thank you Molly. I don't know if it makes a difference but I don't have pens. I have the old fashioned syringes/vials of jnsulin.
